  jhalfs can use either svn or release document. The only reasons for 
jhalfs revisions are improvements/bugs in the code or drastic changes to 
the document styling.

  From the main menu screen.

   Use Book (Beyond Linux From Scratch)

   Release (Branch or Stable)  <<- NOT svn

   (**EDIT ME***) Book version (mandatory)

     change this to

   (6.3) Book version (mandatory)

  If this does not work please send me detailed log information.
