I released the first versions with a date since I anticipated additions
before the release and did not want to make releases and keep having to
IMO, the bootscripts are not very useful when not used in conjunction
with the book. I was going to propose that we use the book version for
the blfs-bootscripts when we make a stable release and dated versions
for the unstable.
For the compatibility with lfs-bootscripts, I have included a file
lfs-bootscripts.version in the root directory which will state the
compatible lfs-bootscripts versions (right now there is only one but as
new versions of lfs-bootscripts are released, we can add more).
