Proposal for an LFS-6.3

Hi all,

The current LFS SVN has an entirely upgraded toolchain, and many
updates to core packages since the 6.2 release. I just built it and
it appears rock solid. Booted without a hitch (using Linux-2.16.20,
Udev-105 and current LFS bootscripts). So far, everything seems really

I propose that we announce a plan to release LFS-6.3. It sure would
make life easy over on the BLFS side with this 6.2 branch we have
that targets LFS 6.2. An LFS 6.3 release would eliminate the need
for us over in BLFS to maintain the 6.2 branch.

It's been about six months since 6.2. Thoughts from others?
