I just wanted to let you all know that the current unstable profile 
seems to be working quite well; the recent changes to do the chapter 8 
builds of the kernel and grub are working fine, I have run three builds 
so far and they have gone off without a problem.

The only issues I know of right now are the parallel build problems 
related to man-1.5p and e2fsprogs-1.36; I'm going to hold off on doing 
anything about them until Daniel has some spare time to comment on what 
else needs to be fixed up for parallel builds. If there is a lot, we 
will need to get a group decision on whether to change the profile that 
much from the book just to support parallel builds, or whether to create 
  a branch with parallel build support and leave the "official" profile 
as close to the book as possible.
