You can simplify this testing process quite a bit by making a copy of 
the "official" LFS profile and using nALFS. If you want to test a 
different build order, just modify the profile order (only have to 
change one file) and send it to the testing team. Should be pretty 
painless, keeps all the logs you require and everyone runs the same set 
of build instructions.
