I'm the author of crablfs.txt, which makes use of
as its basical principles, so maybe I can adopt this hint.

I now rename the package manager from "crablfs" to "ulfs", which means:
1. Your (Manageable and Reusable) Linux From Scratch
2. LFS based on User Package Management

So the concerns and goals of "ulfs" is the reusability, that is,
generating profiles in the background automatically in the interactive
mode as normal LFS building process, and reuse these profiles as
templates the next time to build the LFS automatically by yourself or
others, no matter what platform then.

"ulfs" can also be used in other distributions such as Red Hat, etc ...
to manage the packages compiled from source.

Now I'm working on a project include "ulfs",
which has other 2 subprojects, one is a configuration management system,
including the configuration file sharing mechanism and more powerful
data structure to make the configuration syntax more convenient, such as
a Python Tree (so far).

Another subproject is a near realtime file system mirror application
that makes use of Linux inotify, which is afforded from the recent Linux
kernels (from 2.6.12). It is "near" because it will not blocks the
writing of the server to be mirrored, but in normal conditions the delay
between the server and the backup host is less than 1 second.

I'm not clear about the CC-BY-SA and CC-BY-ND license, is there any
