   		<p>The LFS book can be written to start building an LSB compliant minimal Linux system (ie: minimal according to LSB and other standards, not minimal as in LFS' view of a minimum development system). This would mean chapters 5 and 6 are modified to yield that goal. We would then insert a new chapter that installs the rest (reinstalling coreutils to get it all, adding other optional packages). The exact technical details of this is something we will discuss another time (ie: cvs branch, or main book, or something completely different).</p>
   		<p>If we do this, we will in essence consolidate knowledge and goals into one. The toolchain maintainers of LFS and LSB compare notes, work together to get the best possible system out and LFS itself can become LSB complaint by default which IMO is a very important goal.</p>
   		<p>These are just some thoughts and ideas. There isn't anything concrete yet of course.</p>
  -		<p>During the call I suggested that we can easier discuss this by email on a mailinglist, so I invite you guys to subscribe to the <a href="http://www.linuxbase.org/modules.php?name=Content&pa=showpage&pid=27.">lsb-impl mailinglist</a>. We can talk to the LSB guys there, talk how LFS does things (ie plfs build method), how they do it, what's different, etc. In particular the toolchain is an interesting area. LSB does it differently than LFS. I'd like to see why, maybe there's something we've all missed. It goes both ways, maybe they're doing it in a way that Greg has shown to be overkill.</p>

   		<p>If you guys are interested in pursuing this, join the lsb-impl list. I'm not sure how exactly these discussion will start, but we'll figure that one out soon. There's a second conference call planned this Thursday.</p>
