I disagree with this. Senior Linux and open source "identities" are not
likely to give a "rats arse" about developing a new LFS build method. Sure,
the LFS project is becoming more widely known and the fact that the these
guys know about it is great, but I would rather "let the proof of the
pudding be in the eating". i.e. let reputation take its natural course.

Lets face it, as much as I'd like us to be, we are not a distro. We don't
have paid developers and proper infrastructure. Part of the appeal of LFS is
the "do it yourself" nature of it and this is always going to lead to some
folk going off the rails. My whole reason for working on improvements is to
get the basics right so that we have a solid foundation which will hopefully
shine through in a better reputation.
