    1414The official implementation of ALFS is called jhalfs. Originally created by Jeremy Huntwork, but since developed and maintained by Manuel Canales Esparcia, George Boudreau, Thomas Pegg, and Pierre Labastie, jhalfs has become a light-weight, practical method of automating an LFS build. jhalfs is a Bash shell script that makes use of Subversion and xsltproc to first download the XML sources of the Linux From Scratch book and then extract any necessary commands, placing them into executable shell scripts. If you do not already have the necessary source packages in place on your system, jhalfs can fetch them. Finally, jhalfs generates a Makefile which will control the execution of the shell scripts, allowing for recovery if the build should encounter an error. A way to use package management has been added by Pierre Labastie.

    18 Due to a lack of developers, the last stable version is somewhat old, and does not work well with recent versions of LFS/BLFS. It is better to use the development version:

    36 There were many in-depth features that had been requested for ALFS implementations. Because of this, development had been slated for an entirely new build tool which would have been called alfs. To see a list of features that would have appeared in alfs, please read our [http://www.linuxfromscratch.org/alfs/view/alfs-srs/alfs-srs.html Software Requirements Specification]. Eventually, the ease of use of jhalfs, ultimately pushed development of alfs to the bottom of the stack.
