Sorry for that. I always think it is easier to explain with code...

Just to make sure we understood each other (I am not a native
English speaker), I meant that jhalfs had some instructions to
download on the fly the LFS book from SVN repo. I was not talking
about managing jhalfs mods with GIT. Seeing how the philosophy
of GIT is to have a local "working copy" (+ repo), those download
instructions are maybe not necessary for CLFS.

Since I am also busy with the blfs tools, I think I won't add GIT
download instructions now.
