I think we should also freeze the kernel major version, but allow updates
to the patch version; that is any stable updates to the 3.10.x series should
be considered on their merits during the freeze period.

Other than that, all I can say is congratulations on wrestling BLFS into
a releasable state; the amount of work being done on it is staggering.

Having just moved house, I won't have much time for the next week or so,
but hopefully after that I can start getting back in the game.

Kind Regards,
