I have some ideas for the lfs-hints I would like people to comment on.

Also, if you have any ideas of your own, please let me know.

Firstly, I would like to change the name of the hint-admin mailinglist
to hints at (but we could make
hint-admin at an alias to this to remain compatible

This list will be used for posting new hints, hint changes, new hint
suggestions and hint mistakes/corrections to.

i.e things that need checking in to cvs.

Secondly, I would like to create a new site, Initially this will be a page like
this: which will
list the hints with a short description.

The hints will be in which will
be a dir listing like is

The hint names on  will be a
hyperlink to hints/<hintname> will be made to point to to retain compatibility. will be manually updated when a
new hint is added, or if the name changes.

I'll also be working with Mark on the BLFS project

ehm...think that's about it for now  :)
