But we have been past that point for over a year now.  We are just
restructuring everything and picking a select few features and goals we
want to "officially support" and release as the 1.0 ALFS Specificiation.

Along with any of the code and profiles you may find in CVS, allthough
most of which has become quite unmaintained.

ALFS has been able todo the basics for over a year now, that is build an
LFS system from scratch, automatically.  Allthough the biggest problem
has been lack of documentation :)

Right now all the conversations and effort is going into making an
official specification of the ALFS XML Profile Syntax.  Sure, alot of
people have been going crazy when it comes to all the neat features we
can have, that's mostly because with Neven Has's work on nALFS, it's
actually become quite *easy* todo ALFS and people want to see ALFS move
forward, that's all.

Anyways.. to give ya a mild view of how things are ;)
