Hi, Flake,

You mentioned in your post about other backend/frontend parsers like nALFS 
and a new aLFS, as well as new syntax etc.

Would it be a good idea to decided which syntax and backend to use now, 
rather than have half people write profiles for one backend/syntax and some 
for others.  This could be a real pain in the end.  And I'm not sure which to 
learn properly.

I'd love to get into wrting profiles, but unfortunately I'm choosing on 
cutting my teeth adding to the LFS3.0 base profile, to copy over essential 
sysconfig etc from the host.  Things like /etc/hosts, inputrc, and 
/etc/lilo.conf etc. and 'll need to work something out for /etc/fstab.  I say 
unfortunately cause making these additions useful to all would be near 
impossible as you can imagine.

I'm off to see what the prospects of a 3.0rc1 profile are. :)
