Personally, I never use a released BLFS book. I can understand why some
feel it is necessary or important, but for me, by the time it is
released, it always feels so dated. Not a fault on any of the devs part,
just a nature of the current setup, I think.
Anyway, this isn't really a vote, whichever way the current BLFS devs
want to do it is fine. I just think that there might be some advantages
to a versionless book worthy of consideration.
