Well, first comment: I think this ^^^^^ announcement should be put on 
the website. I'll forward it to lfs.website if no one is against that.

Also: everyone, please use this profile as much as possible. It's not 
because we consider it very much beta that it's unusable. In fact, I've 
built a basic GNOME with it without any problems. It does md5-checking, 
it has a script that downloads the packages you need, it's quite 
configurable,... Nothing should stop you from testing it, I guess. :-)

We'd really appreciate all bugreports, failures, successes and other 
kinds of input we get.
