I like the idea of letting people easily go back to fix chapter 5. I'd
like to see how it all looks before deciding who will end up owning
/static here. I haven't thought this through, and I'm frequently doing
test builds of chapter 5 as the same user (lfs). I guess that those of us
who want to keep /static around long-term will end up assigning it to
root.root (sorry, root:root according to earlier mails).

Tuesday or Wednesday _is_ Monday'ish, at least for large values of
Monday. There are things outside LFS.

Listen to others, even to the dull and ignorant;
     for you too may be a Manager some day.
