All I recall seeing was a request to not post support questions on
lfs-dev from Timothy and my ok, I won;t do it again, with a couple
intermediate post arriving at that point. Then everyone else just kept
doing what they had been doing.

As to "actual bugs", the latest 2.2.4 "test harness" scripts nicely
break the LFS scripts that exist by removing symlinks to achieve more
FHS compliance. Is this a "actual bug" or a "feature".

My answer is my scripts that implement both the LFS production and CVS
books will not work without investigation/modification of the existing

So, now, where should a poor nOOb go for help? Thank heavens I can
handle these.

FHS -> /dev/null for now.
