btw the list isn't called lfs-linux but just linux (like the old 
linux at linuxfromscratch.org list)

Correct. If you don't intend to bring LFS in the discussion don't hold it on 
the lfs-chatter list. We all want a list to just talk away but we have to 
seperate LFS talks from non-lfs talks.

I don't like that and I know of people who don't like that either. There are 
people who just want to hear about LFS and don't care about threads like the 
open-source/closed-source threads that's going on. If we put everything on a 
'chatter' list those threads are still mixing with LFS threads and we then 
still have the same problem we have on lfs-apps right now, we just move it to 
a different list but not solve the problem at hand: the seperation of LFS and
