   		<h2>CVS Information</h2>
   			<p>The LFS book is stored in <abbr title="Concurrent Versions System">CVS</abbr>. This allows for multiple editors to make changes to the book's files at the same times, completely with revision histories so we can revert back to an older state, and more of that. For more information about CVS, go to their <a href="http://www.cvshome.org">homepage</a>.</p>
  -			<p>Besides the stable releases you can also read the development in-progress version of the book from CVS. There are currently two branches in CVS. CVS HEAD is the main development branch which will lead to the next major release, 6.0 at the moment. The other branch is the so-called stable branch, which means keeping 5.0 up-to-date package wise, critical bugs, spell fixes and whatever else gets put into it for 5.0. The 5.x branch will always be stable and because it requires little testing at any given time, we can get the 5.1, 5.2, 5.3, etc release out relatively quick. CVS HEAD will be our bleeding edge stuff again, may not always work, etc, etc.</p>

   			<p>Make sure you are up-to-date with the <a href="../mail.html">lfs-dev mailinglist</a> so you're aware of all the problems that we're already aware off, and also for fixes not yet integrated into the book.</p>
  -			<p>If you're still interested in reading the CVS version, you can read the <a href="view/cvs/" title="snapshot is generated daily">daily snapshot</a>. Note that this snapshot is updated once a day, so it's not the most up-to-date version. There is also a <a href="http://traduc.lfs.tuxfamily.org/view/lfs-cvs-fr/">French translation</a> of CVS, allthough it may lag behind the English version a bit.</p>

   		<h3>CVS Checkout</h3>
   			<p>The book itself is written in <abbr title="Extensible Markup Language">XML</abbr>, so you need to have the proper software installed. The book's source comes with XML usage instructions and the required software installation instructions.</p>
   			<p>You have a few options to access the CVS archive of the LFS-Book. If you have the CVS program installed, you can checkout a copy of the current LFS book and work with the XML files yourself. To do so, run the following command:</p>
   				<code>cvs -z9 -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxfromscratch.org:/home/cvsroot checkout LFS</code>
   			<p>To get a copy of the stable 5.0x branch, run the following command:</p>
  -				<code>cvs -z9 -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxfromscratch.org:/home/cvsroot checkout -r v5_0 LFS</code>
  +				<code>cvs -z9 -d :pserver:anonymous at cvs.linuxfromscratch.org:/home/cvsroot checkout -r b5_x LFS</code>
   			<p>There are two files in the LFS Book source tree, named README and INSTALL you should read. They explain how you can setup your system to work with the XML files and how to transform it to other formats like HTML, PDF, PS and TXT.</p>
   		<h3>CVS Web</h3>
   			<p>The second option is to view the LFS source tree online in our <a href="http://cvs.linuxfromscratch.org" title="View the most current LFS sources">CVS Web interface</a>.</p>
