My concern was that it appeared that these decisions were being made
off-list and without any concern for how it will affect LFS or BLFS. I
hope that that's not the case.
Also, in all due respect, and though I'm sure it's your intention, I'd
like to ask that this mailing list be used as much as possible for
development and decisions. I personally don't have the time to be
hanging out in IRC all the time these days, but I'd still like to be
up-to-speed on the various issues that come up, as I'm sure would many
others that don't connect to IRC.
I'm only requesting the above because I know IRC is easy and perhaps
better suited for dev decisions (when everyone's there often enough) and
the tendency is to just work out something there, find a solution to
whatever you're working on, and keep going. But please resist that urge
;) and use this list as much as possible.

Thanks for the further verification on these points.
