Yes, i recently had a look at Neven's profiles; very clean - i like the

Yeah, it is possible to have a an external .xml the just lists which
profiles to use. i.e.
<!DOCTYPE alfs [
<!ENTITY % xfree-ents SYSTEM "xfree-ents">
<!ENTITY xfree SYSTEM "xfree.xml">
<!ENTITY xfree-41 SYSTEM "xfree-41.xml">
<!ENTITY zlib SYSTEM "zlib.xml">
<!-- the xfree.xml file -->
<!-- end xfree.xml file -->
Now while this _is_ valid XML, the current perl ALFS doesnt support it,
appently XML::Twig is screwed in this regard the '%' entity pointers dont
get expanded during parsing... Another way of doing it would be to use the
<include /> tag, but i havent had a play with that as yet, from memory I
found a demo set of profiles on Neven's site the was demostrating the
<include>, so you want to have a look.

I did start on a cvs primer a while ago, i'll see if i can get a few moments
in the next couple of days to update it with all the cool new things i've
learned about cvs recently, branching et al...
