and looking at the developers wiki:


      v5.1

        * Fix all outstanding "to-do" bugs not handled before the
          release of v5.0.
        * Finish the XML overhaul
        * Complete overhaul of the LFS Bootscripts (#325)
        * Have user "lfs" have a clean environment during Chapter 5 (#714)
        * Re-evaluate the order in which packages are installed and
          provide the rationale behind the chosen order (#684)
        * Make LFS fully FHS compliant (#460)
        * Finish and include self diagnostic scripts (#237)
        * Resolve the --libexecdir usage (#678)
        * Verify if we indeed move too many coreutils binaries to /bin
          (#679)


        Notes for v5.1

        * *Release Schedule Target*: February 2004
        * *Rationale (Pro's)*: There were some things that time did not
          allow the editors to get to before a release of v5.0. The
          leadership teams decided it was better to put a new initial
          version out and then handle an interim release as we work on
          some major overhall items.
        * *Objections (Con's)*: None.

it looks like we are making quite a bit of progress.  Bugs 714, 237, 
678, and 679 have been resolved.

Additionally, there have been several packages upgraded to current releases.

This leaves 325, 684, and 460 plus the P1 and other P2 bugs above.  
Note: Bug 333 looks like it can be combined with bug 325.

I suspect the XML overhaul and glibc 2.3.3 should be postphoned to 5.2, 
otherwise everything looks quite doable to me.

I think we should now start focusing on LFS 5.1 now.
