   <h2>Scope</h2>
   	<p>"Linux From Scratch" (LFS) will educate Unix/Linux users about considerations, decisions, components and commands used to build a working GNU/Linux system, using program sources and a GNU/Linux host platform. The target audience is "intermediate-to-advanced" users of UNIX/Linux. Tools include publications and support via the internet.</p>
   	<p>The "Beyond Linux From Scratch" (BLFS) project will continue on to application-specific components as might be used for work stations, content servers and gateways.</p>
  -	<p>"Automated Linux From Scratch" (ALFS) will offer an automatic install that is configurable and repeatable. A variation of this will support internal and "Linux Standard Base" project test and verification needs. Although not a full regression-capable automated test system, it (or a derivative of it) will undergo modification to achieve full-regression test capability.</p>

  +	<p>"Hardened Linux From Scratch" (HLFS) will educate Unix/Linux users about considerations, decisions, components and commands used to build a working GNU/Linux system (with strong emphasis on teaching and resolving security concerns), using program sources and a GNU/Linux host platform.  The target audience is "intermediate-to-advanced" users of UNIX/Linux.  The HLFS project will continue on to application-specific components as might be used for work stations, content servers and gateways with focus on the latter two. Tools include publications and support via the Internet.</p>

   <h2>Bounds</h2>
   	<p>"Linux From Scratch" will not supplant commonly available sources of help (tutorials, "HOWTOS", ...) for users unfamiliar with basic GNU/Linux user utilities. These include typical shell operations (directory, environmental variables, scripts, I/O redirection, ...), file manipulation (copy, move, rename, locate, ...), text manipulation (edit, find in file, concatenate, ...), file system operations (partitioning, mounts, ...), list and print (cat, tee, more, ...), and operations requirements (dump, boot, restore, ...).</p>
   	<p>"Beyond Linux From Scratch" will not educate users on the underlying administration principals that must be considered when configuring for the different applications included in its scope.</p>
  +	<p>"Automated Linux From Scratch" will not be an entirely "hands off" build system. The user still needs a thorough understanding of the LFS book used to generate their ALFS profile to successfully build and use an LFS system using ALFS tools.</p>
  +	<p>"Hardened Linux From Scratch" will not supplant the (B)LFS books' instructions.  It will not teach the basics of installing an operating system included in the LFS book, nor will it teach the basics of add-on packages that are in the BLFS book. It will contain only the instructions and educational text that differs from the (B)LFS books.</p>
