It's no longer Linux From Scratch when each user that makes a distro from scratch does so because now it can be called by the persons name for the Distro it is.

Or if the person or company decides to make name it, then it's not a LFS, it's their distro with their name.

I voted no because I can tell the difference between an ISO for DVD or CD and a tarball that's either html, xml, text, or pdf.

t3gah,

You basically have already brought up such topics in our Website Suggestions and Feedback forum. You already tried this once where the thread was closed, this one is being closed as well for the same reasons.

If you persist with such actions after being told not to do so, you can and will eventually lose privileges to this site. Make this your last warning!

Regards,

-trickykid
