The Host System requirements may indeed be too low for LFS 6.6, but I am 
reluctant to change them based on your input because you have made lots 
of changes.  You claim your scripts encompass the book's commands, but I 
don't have the time or desire to check that, especially when we have an 
automated way to build.

If you want to help, fine.  Give us definitive reasons to change the 
book.  That includes validation of your findings using our tools.

You don't need to change what you have.  It's easy enough to clone 
directories and to do testing with that.

You seem to be demanding perfection from a small group of volunteers.
We don't claim to be perfect.  There are too many combinations to check 
old versions of the packages against the latest version.

Where did that come from?  I don't see a reference.

You don't have any standing to 'expect' anything from us.  You can 
suggest, but with your attitude, my reaction is to push back and say no, 
even if that's wrong.
