A willingness to work with other editors and to make changes to the books 
using docbook and svn.  Large or invasive changes need to be discussed 
before they are committed.  Generally we need to limit new packages just 
because of the maintenance burden.

See http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/blfs/edguide/ for mechanics.

Dated but still valid.

Where we need help is keeping up with upstream changes in BLFS.  LFS is 
generally fairly easy to maintain, but discussions are reasonably common.
