I'm going to do a complete about-turn on my earlier message from 
tonight.  The way I see it is that the current svn layout and procedures 
around them should work just fine:

LFS/trunk/BOOK - LFS book, forms the base of CLFS, BLFS, etc.
LFS/trunk/bootscripts - LFS bootscripts, forms the base on which BLFS 
and CLFS bootscripts are built on.
LFS/trunk/udev-config - LFS udev rules, forms the base on which BLFS and 
CLFS udev rules are built on.

Now, if BLFS and/or CLFS need bootscript tarballs and udev-config 
tarballs automatically generated to facilitate them getting access to 
bug-fixes and/or feature enhancements from LFS in a timely fashion I'm 
sure that can be setup relatively easily.

The major advantage to this scheme, IMO, is consistency.  Everything to 
do with the LFS book is in one repository.  Likewise, for BLFS and CLFS, 
everything concerning their books would be in their own svn repos.  If 
you need changes to the LFS bootscripts or rules files submit a trac 
ticket just as is done now and it'll be dealt with.  No changes to 
current procedures are required, from what I can see.

So, what are the drawbacks to this approach?  Why won't it work?
