Uploading new packages, and the editor's manual
ken at linuxfromscratch.org

In the editor's guide (6.3), it says
Download the package to belgarath in your home directory. If it's not
bzip2'ed, then make it so.
Is this still sensible ? As far as I can see, we point all downloads
to homepages or mirrors, rather than to an lfs domain. I'm asking
because I want to update the udev_update branch to 18.104.22.168, which is a
mere 38.9M according to my local mirror, and I'm sure we'll go through a
few more kernel versions before the next release.
I'm also planning to update the manual soon - it predates trac, and the
instructions for downloading (trunk) make branch maintenance
unnecessarily difficult, at least IMHO. To say nothing of blank
passphrases. Any comments ?
das eine Mal als TragÃ¶die, das andere Mal als Farce
