I think there are licensing issues with the TLDP.  TLDP want one of 
http://www.opensource.org/licenses/.  Our current license/copyright text 
is at 
http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/view/unstable/prologue/legalnotice.html. 
   Changing this, if it is indeed necessary and desirable, will require 
the consent of all current and previous contributors.  I'm not sure how 
trivial (or otherwise) a process this will be.  In short, I don't think 
we'll be able to get 6.0 into TLDP due to this constraint.  As for 
future versions...who knows?

Cheers,

Matt.
