New nALFS features
For those working with the XML of either the application battery, or the
LSB-SI, please update your nALFS source (src/tools/nALFS), and rebuild and
The two new features are
1) A new "nofail" option on the package node. This will initially be useful for
the application battery to assist in a nightly build. If something
breaks, it won't prevent the later application from being built.
2) A new conditional node. Initially, the only test type supported is "arch".
This can be used to seperate architecture specific areas, such as
applying a patch or even building something. Future test types will
include "fexists" to test for the existance of a file.
A quick (non-sensical) example shows the syntax for these new features
