 Last year, there were changes on about 108 days.  Basically,
whenever something needed fixing, and when a ticket in trac [
mostly, package upgrades ] appeared to be ready to action.

 I'm not sure about the current situation with trac, but once the
server migration is complete you should be able to use it to look at
each changeset if you want to.  We typically make separate changes
for different packages, so there were a lot more than 108 changes
last year.  Generally, you probably want to download a rendered
version of the book [ so that it doesn't change under you ] but also
keep an eye on the -dev and -book lists in case any breakages get

 Testing is always useful - expect to find occasional build breakage
in BLFS as a result of LFS changes.
