IMHO, just update to the packages listed now on Trac (except, of course, the 
toolchain ones), and do package freezing to release 6.3 very soon.

Toolchain update, bootloader(s) update, and the other remaining open bugs may 
meant to start working on 7.x LFS series.

The DocBook-XSL-1.72.1 release timeframe is a unknow variable. I asked some 
days ago to Bob Stayton about that without answers for now.

Due that 1.72.0 was the first testing release including native support for 
DB-XML-5.0-rcX, I suposse that he might be waiting the final DB-XML-5.0 
release to release the acompaning XSL stable release.

If that DB-XSL release is not done at time for LFS-6.3, we must release the 
book with the current stylesheets or, if really wanted to use the new code, 
to port the full nex-xml branch, included the docbook-xsl-snapshot files (or 
even create our own LFS-XSL tarball).
