Will do. My eyes are tired, so I will do my best.

Yes, you would just tag the book(s) as v3_1, pull that version and 
render into properly named files. If you follow the LFS/BLFS model, 
you'll have to set the version entities in the book XML files to "3.1", 
tag, then change them back to "CVS-....".

Once there is a stable version to pull into the tarballs, I'll modify 
the bootstrap script to pull from the new location (which I assume will 
be /alfs/downloads/guides).
