At the current rate, if we do LFS 7.0 this summer it would have to be 
sans package manager.

However, x86_64 support (and PowerPC, for that matter) is pretty much 
ready to drop in. The only thing missing is the change of boot loader 
section and adjustments to the kernel page. It's really just a matter of 
forcing myself to sit down and do it. I've been getting side tracked by 
a lot of other things.

To be current, I'd also like to see the Udev blocker sorted out before 
we release 7.0. See: http://wiki.linuxfromscratch.org/lfs/ticket/2057 It 
basically comes down to finding a solution to properly setting up 
persistent udev rules for NICs while in chroot. Recent versions of udev 
have changed their configuration such that our current method won't work.

As to package management and other suggestions for changes for LFS in 
general, I'm currently polishing up some ideas and concepts.
