I remember (not details, though), but never thought It would affect me,

Yes, it is not very much. Just followed the "3. After LFS Configuration
Issues", without much thinking, after doing any times. It is a good
point. I will stop using it, at the end, if you do not do it after each
package update, could end with two versions, old compressed, new

It was not a big deal, but was worth mentioning. Now, I have better
understanding; before, it was a mystery.
Again, perhaps, a comment or note about the issue? This one, I think I
can do. For example, just slight rephrasing:
"If you would prefer to download the file instead of creating it by
typing or cut-and-pasting ..."
"Using cut-and-pasting, corrupted script creation has been reported. For
this or if you would prefer to download the file, instead, ..."
Anyway, thanks for the explanation.
