+1.  The way I see it, there would be a "boot" project.  I don't see
why this would have to be any different than patches with a shared
repo between projects.  I think all the editors could have commit
privelages, with a few project leaders to coordinate and arbitrate.

Personally, I feel like after the merging happened, it would be a lot
less of an issue than everyone is making out to be.  How often does
LFS change the udev rules?  There was the big change a month or so ago
when Archaic and Alexander rewrote them.  Since then, one or two minor
fixes.  What are the major differences between the LFS bootscripts and
the CLFS bootscripts?  As far as I can tell, CLFS has an option to
output to an LCD screen.  How often does BLFS change the bootscripts?
Almost never after they are checked in.  The last change was a month

I looked at the LFS and CLFS udev rules.  They aren't very different.
And if both the CD symlink techniques are just put in contrib, well
that was ~90% of the battle.

So, I say let's do this.  I don't care where it's hosted.  As long as
the people that become project leaders are impartial, it will be a lot
easier than people are making it out to be.


P.S.  Can we keep the off-topic bickering to a minimum?
