Now that lfs-5.1-pre2 is out, the structure of CVS has changed somewhat.
CVS HEAD is now open for large-scale changes, including new build
methods (should we need/invent one) and major package upgrades
(toolchain and kernel related). It is to be considered an unstable
area as there are no longer any guarantees as to the stability of a
system built from HEAD.
The b6_0 branch is where development for LFS-6.0 will be taking place.
At the moment a pre1 release is imminent. This branch contains
kernel-2.6 and associated tools. This is in effect is what the previous
CVS HEAD was, in that it's relatively stable but not yet mainstream.
The b5_1 branch is where all commits are to be made for the upcoming 5.1
release. As this is a pre-release, systems built from this book should
be stable, and only bug-fixes, spelling and typo related changes can be
made. As outlined previously the glibc tarball will be renamed once
complete, but this is the *only* exception to the previous restrictions.
