I understand why the version BLFS is often behind LFS.  However, I do 
think the "one or two months" BLFS statement should be changed as it 
hurts credibility.  IF there is a date, list it and meet that date.

I don't want to come across as casting stones as I admire the BLFS 
project and realize it's volunteer and difficult.  I'm simply saying 
volunteer and difficult shouldn't exclude accurate information.  The 
current release statement is analogous to saying "nuclear fusion is ten 
years away."  That claim resets every ten years, as does the BLFS claim 
every month.
