For now I don't have a problem with it (since I'm not working a normal
job) but in a few months I have to make choices. Since LFS doesn't help
me paying bills you all can guess what will have a higher priority. I'll
try to get things done as quickly as possible so that in several months
we have a thing going that can sustain itself.

Yes definitely. Perhaps database submissions should be moderated (ie:
you submit something, it gets sent to me by email, I read it, make
modifications where necessary (mostly layout, grammar, not
content without writers approval of course) and with a simple email it
should be able to be inserted into the database. Everything is possible,
I just have to figure out how to do it. Perhaps I could invest a few
bucks in a new animal book about SQL.
