The new XSL-based jhalfs code developed into the experimental branch is ready
svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/ALFS/jhalfs/branches/experimental
It can build the development LFS book including improved support for all
built-in features found in trunk (blfs-tool support, custom-tools,
optimizations, iterative builds, and installed files logging) plus a new
support for system build customizations via XSL code that should allow to
create external pluggins, like package management support.
The README* files has not been updated, thus you should to look at the
LFS/lfs.xsl and XSL/*.xsl to know what templates are availables for
Development CLFS*/HLFS and stable LFS books aren't supported due non-done-yet
required changes in the books XML code.
I would to know yours opinions and feelings about that new code before start
working on CLFS & HLFS migration. The goal is to let users to create their
own jhalfs extensions without the need to create patches and/or edit several
files. Just creating an XSL file and calling it from the menu config instead
the default one should be enough.
