Looks like we are on the same page.  What other discussions do you think 
we need?  Putting all of the implementations on one page is a good idea. 
  nALFS will be on the top I would guess with the others on down.  News 
on the main home page will be of a nALFS only nature, since the cvs logs 
will be from the project's commits.  I see the changes looking like this:

On the left side bar:

* Pull all the implementations off the list.  Replace with a "Other 
Implementations" link that describes the other tools available and 
includes links to home pages and such.

* Change the "What is..." page to discuss the general nature of the ALFS 
project, but then go into a little more detail on nALFS's implementation 
and why it is the "official" one the LSB and LFS projects use.

* Add a roadmap link to the wiki page for it.  This goes with my other 
post about getting the wiki integrated more..

We have a syntax doc that I want to get posted.  I need to get that 
setup on the server first with render scripts like what we have for the 
two books.
