I plan to remove (i.e. move these hints to the OLD subdirectory) the
following hints from the PREVIOUS_FORMAT directory for the reasons
mentioned. Please respond back if you think this action should not be

* automount: In BLFS.
* iproute2: In LFS.
* kerberos: In BLFS
* lzw_graphics: No longer valid, all apps mentioned include LZW.
* nfs: In BLFS.
* pam+shadow+cracklib: In BLFS.
* ppp: In BLFS.
* sendmail: In BLFS.
* shadowpasswd_plus: In LFS and BLFS.
* shells: In BLFS.

Additionally, check out the hints at
and their status at
If you are the author, please plan to convert the hints to the new
(well not so new anymore) format. The hints in the previous format are
not indexed automatically by the script, hence few people know of
their existence.


PS: CCing -support lists for wider audience. Please reply to the hints group.
