+            jhalfs TODO
+          ---------------
+
+CODE STYLE
+----------
+
+  - To use the same coding style in all modules. The current used
+    for HLFS module (colors, error-handling, etc) look a good starting
+    point for me, with two notes (to be discussed):
+
+    - Bash code: to use two-spaces indentation (no tabs).
+    - Makefile code: to use eight-characters tabs.
+
+  - To set the "Date" and "Id" svn:keywords properties on all files
+    setting the "Id" key on the header of each file and using the
+    "Date" key when needed (like in the -v output of jhalfs)
+
+
+MASTER SCRIPT
+-------------
+
+  - Make jhalfs a "master script" that will control and run each
+    book's module. When doing that reestructuration we coulud to change
+    the tool's name, if wanted.
+
+  - Common code for all modules should be placed in this master script.
+
+  - Common configuration options should be placed in a master configuration
+    file.
+
+  - The LFS, CLFS and HLFS modules should be exclusives. I.e., when
+    one is called the others must be ignored.
+
+  - The BLFS moudule should can be called in conjunction with any of
+    LFS, CLFS or HLFS modules.
+
+  - Addapt the Makefile to install all modules system-wide.
+
+
+
+LFS MODULE (some of this is applicable also to CLFS and HLFS modules)
+----------
+
+  - To move the LFS module to their own subdir.
+
+  - To fix the now missing locales installation needed by testsuites
+    in Chapter05 Glibc.
+
+  - Chapter05 testsuites should be optionals. Run by default Chapter06
+    testsuites only.
+
+  - Look that there is no need now to keep the Binutils source.
+
+  - Fix the unpack code to don't hang when both the bz2 and gz formats
+    of the same package are founds in the sources dir.
+
+  - To add a switch to build the BLFS module dependencies at the end of
+    the LFS build, that is, wget and sudo. SVN and libxslt aren't needed
+    at this stage due that the BLFS book could be downloaded and parser
+    at the same time that the LFS book. Plus links or lynx to read the
+    (to be) generated BLFS HTML pages and, maybe, gpm.
+
+
+CLFS MODULE
+-----------
+
+  - Start the module creation.
+
+
+HLFS MODULE
+-----------
+
+  - To review and fix, if needed, the bash and XSL code.
+
+  - Be sure that the book's XML code is in a sane state.
+
+  - To do several build test for both Glibc and uClibc based systems.
+
+
+BLFS MODULE
+-----------
+
+  - The SourceForge download links don't work.
+
+  - To fix files creation using sudo. Comment from Ag Hatzim:
+
+      Commands, that using cat with sudo, to redirect the output to
+      certain files that users have no write access, will fail.
+
+      Eg. fcron.
+
+      #-------------------------------#
+      (~/jhablfs)sudo cat >> /etc/syslog.conf << "EOF"
+      # Begin fcron addition to /etc/syslog.conf
+
+      cron.* -/var/log/cron.log
+
+      # End fcron addition
+      EOF
+      zsh: permission denied: /etc/syslog.conf
+      #-------------------------------#
+
+      Since the shell is doing the redirection (man bash -REDIRECTION),
+      *before* the command is executed, sudo can not see the redirection,
+      so a new shell is needed for sudo to execute the actual command.
+
+      Like so, the previous command should be something like this.
+
+      #-------------------------------#
+      (~/jhablfs)sudo sh -c "cat >> /etc/syslog.conf << "EOF"
+      # Begin fcron addition to /etc/syslog.conf
+
+      cron.* -/var/log/cron.log
+
+      # End fcron addition
+      EOF"
+      #-------------------------------#
+
+  - Figure out how to handle Perl modules installation and other pages
+    that have commands to install more that one package (e.g., Gnat in GCC
+    Java-bin in Java, sane-backends and sane-frotnends in Sane, etc)
+
+
+OTHERS
+------
+
+  - To add support for ICA/farce? Can be done as a separate module?
+
+  - To add support for package management???
