I'm not going to comment on this other than that I think recertification every 
two years is silly. Linux moves fast but not quite *that* fast. On the other 
hand, frequent recertification does generate money for the LPI, so must be a 
good thing. We're beating Microsoft at their own game :^)

My question is the following: It used to be forbidden for successful 
candidates to re-sit an LPI exam unless the objectives had changed in the 
meantime. I can see the LPI reviewing the objectives once per exam in the 
space of five years, but if you recommend that people recertify themselves at 
much shorter intervals (like two years), is the ban on unmodified re-sits 
going to be lifted, or are you going to commit to a two-year maximum cycle 
for objective reviews for all exams?
