Component:  BOOK         |     Version:  a-SVN                         
 Severity:  normal       |    Keywords:  Games GLFS                    
 During the past week or so, I have created a book that I am calling Games
 for Linux From Scratch (GLFS). There were multiple reasons that I created
 this, but then main one was so that I could track what was required to
 install XYZ game on the LFS/BLFS system and this would also help me to
 know what I did to get it installed. I also wanted to understand the XML
 that we use for the other books and how the book got created into a HTML

 At any rate, I have a book created that has three games and three
 utilities documented in it. I have also set up sections for the grouping
 of 11 type of games. If anyone is interested I can tar the XML and/or the
 HTML and send it along.

 My proposal is that we start a new section of LFS called GLFS (or include
 in BLFS), This would involve web site, mailing lists, support, SVN, etc.
 Sounds simple but I know this is a lot of work, but I already have a good
 start on the book. I have copied the table of contents below which
 probably has more than is needed in the Introduction section.

 Simple and straight to the point.

 Let me know what you think.
