Sorry to resurrect a 15 day old thread, but are we set in stone on 6.7
then?  It is unfortunate, but I've just started on current SVN thinking
we were shooting for a 6.8 simultaneous release. Obviously I did not
read this thread as close a I had thought I had. :-) I'm not that far
and LFS only takes about 2 hours to build now days (I have all the
post-install tasks in a single shell script that takes about 3 seconds
to run) so not a big deal if I should start over, however, if we are
shooting for 6.7 + errata, I'll want to rebuild.  Also, need to add
glibc and patch to LFS errata.
