The new XSL-based jhalfs code developed into the experimental branch is ready 
for review:

svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/ALFS/jhalfs/branches/experimental

It can build the development LFS book including improved support for all 
built-in features found in trunk (blfs-tool support, custom-tools, 
optimizations, iterative builds, and installed files logging) plus a new 
support for system build customizations via XSL code that should allow to 
create external pluggins, like package management support.

The README* files has not been updated, thus you should to look at the 
LFS/lfs.xsl and XSL/*.xsl to know what templates are availables for 

Development CLFS*/HLFS and stable LFS books aren't supported due non-done-yet 
required changes in the books XML code. 

I would to know yours opinions and feelings about that new code before start 
working on CLFS & HLFS migration. The goal is to let users to create their 
own jhalfs extensions without the need to create patches and/or edit several 
files. Just creating an XSL file and calling it from the menu config instead 
the default one should be enough.
