I just thought of another list... perhaps a moderated list called
lfs-bugs where bug notices can be released...

these would include things like the bad ncurses link in bash, important
patches for glibc 2.2 ... etc...

OK, so these wouldn't be bugs in LFS per-se, but a list where these
announcements could be made would be useful... just a thought :)

also, perhaps a better name for lfs-problems might be... lfs-assistance

too long?


it's more optimistic :)

btw, sorry for the messages to apps, before... I hadn't read the other
messages about not posting to apps at the time...
