Like the way I thought, but I don't know how to patch nALFS to understand
XLink ( more infos http://www.w3.org/TR/xlink/ )
I already wrote about that, I thought it might look like this.
<!DOCTYPE alfs [
<!ENTITY LFS "/mnt/lfs">
<!ENTITY packages_dir "/usr/mnt/sources">
<!ENTITY build_dir "/mnt/lfs/usr/src">
<package xml:link="bash" href="bash-static.xml" />
<package xml:link="bash" href="bash.xml" />
<package xml:link="x11" href="x11.xml" />
I keep that in mind, for a discussion of a new syntax.
I have just another idea. Above I mentioned "basch-static.xml" and
"bash.xml" and I think this two should be in one file.
There could be a attribute <package type="static"> and the attributes
could be uses even for eg. vim <package type="with-x-support">
But first let's start with the basics of a new syntax. ( or two? one for
the different host specific master profiles and one for the packages ?)
