Unless I'm misunderstanding you they already are on the web:

I'm not sure I agree about the .tar.bz2 being instantaneous though:
ncftp /home/ftp/lfs-hints > ls -l
-rw-rw-r--   1 ian      lfsftp       422359 Jul 25 08:00 lfs-hints.tar.bz2

That's 400Kib which isn't that quick to get on a 56k connection
nevermind someone still on a 14.4k modem :-)

I don't see why we can't just alter the /etc/cron.d/lfs-hints cronjob to
stick the individual hints in /home/ftp somewhere as well.

/me shrugs
