It is alfs. (x)alfs was the title I put to a design proposal to show that
it was just food for thought, nobody wants to force this design upon people.
ALFS was just a specification for a "profile language" to be implemented by
all ALFS-project tools. nALFS was an implementation of ALFS.
But the official version of whatever comes out of this project will be called

It is *both* about remote builds *and* better/more maintainable automation
at the same time. Don't mind much about the remote builds, if several people
don't want them we could make them optional. If you only want automation
then only contribute your (implementable) ideas for this part, please.
