Not bad necesarilly. I've created a profile with some of my ideas and ideas
of others (well a bit at least). Then we'll discuss it and talk about syntax.
As we talk about syntax I'm updating that sample profile and upload a new one
to alfs.linuxfromscratch.org periodically.
Why do I take this alternative path? I've said to numerous people before, and
I mean it, that code says more than a thousand words.
As we come up with ideas I want to put it in the profile right away so we can
all see what it looks like. We then like it, or we don't. I'll be doing a lot
of profile editing but that's ok with me.
