No, it has never been that way. And I cannot see it every being that way.
The goal is to have a "stable" LFS platform, and a matching "stable"
BLFS. In a perfect world, that process of a stable BLFS following the
most recent stable LFS would be a month or so. Unfortunately, we are just
too understaffed to even begin to reach that goal

But GDBM is in LFS-6.5, our new target.

You would have to convince the entire community of that. We've been
doing it differently since the project started. Mostly because LFS
is to fast a moving target, BLFS could never catch up. What it would
require is that every package update in LFS-SVN means the BLFS devs
need to rebuild LFS, and start over testing packages.
