Overall, good document, however I share Tushar's concern. Is it possible
to establish some ground rules? I'd hate to see CVS HEAD become the
backdoor through which the BE-LFS crowd can basically do whatever they
feel like with LFS, even if this means a break with previous established
practices (ie. "you can't stop hotplug and udev anymore because it's
already in HEAD").
I tried to make a proposition before but got shot down by Zack, who
didn't provide any alternative then "Because we say it is good", which
is insufficient IMHO.
