I've updated LilyDev and been working with it this week testing the
basics - it makes the code and the doc. I've given Mike a copy of the
iso (as he was the only one I knew who used LilyDev in anger) and I
FTP'd the iso to Phil's website last night. As far as I know, this is
good to go.

Thomas the ISO is a 32 bit, 10.04 version of Ubuntu that can be
installed directly on hardware or, as I do, used in a Virtual Machine
on any x86 based hardware (i.e. Virtual Box for Windows/Mac/Linux).
I've compiled the binary using as little as 750mb of RAM with a single
CPU - you'll need about 10GB of disk space (give or take), but if you
ever wanted to make the whole doc you'd need more and 1 CPU with small
amounts of RAM would take a while to compile all the doc. For LSR you
don't need this, obviously.

It doesn't do GUB, but it has everything else asked for on the tracker.

I can take a look at the quick start over the weekend, but after the
iso is downloaded (and I am no programmer) I can be installed with
Virtual Box and have a compiled binary - of the latest dev version -
in less than an hour (assuming you have a relatively fast internet to
download the code) of which 80% of that is letting the computer just
