Something I was curious about was something even simpler and users
don't even need web access or a gui with their host OS.
The idea is to use script or script replay!
script -t 2>lfs.timing lfs.session
Do all your introduction and setup and all and go through the first
package maybe even up to GCC to show how to do those commands.
ctrl-d and all that is saved
Build some more and then when you start to work setting up chroot
append to the script
script -t 2>lfs.timing -a lfs.session
go through that and building some things... you can skip whatever is
needed (because all output will be scripted as well... so building
while not on a fast machine can make the script quite boring).
Then when getting to another big section like configuring the system
and fstab and networking.. append to the script again
Then users can download the files and replay the script
scriptreplay lfs.timing lfs.session
By the way, it'll script everything, even your typos! Hah!
