Even though chapter 1's title is inappropriate (has been for a long time),
I like the mirror list in there. I look at chapter 1 as a quick overview of
the various resources LFS offers (mirror, mailinglists, FAQ).

Then again if we can make a clean split so chapter 1 has the book-only
informational things like changelog, version, acknowledgements and contact
info, we can move all the other things elsewhere. Chapter 3 seems ok for
mirrors but that'll split that off from the other LFS resources such as
mail.lists/archives, newsserver and faq.

Before we do this, let's find a 'new home' for those items.
