Yep, your right... lfs id is too fraught with problems, #lfs is problematic 
as not all can use irc, mailing lists is ok...   your choice of 25 is a 
better number, so how about the first 25 numerically registered lfs users 
who have lfs version 1.0 listed as their first version...  sweet, I'm back 
in the list again...   ;-)

Seriously though, my almost rampant use of smilies in this thread, leads me 
to own up and suggest that the whole idea is a risky venture...  if Gerard 
wants to thank people he lists then (editors are a good suggestion), if he 
doesn't then he doesn't list them.  Setting a bar or criteria of any kind 
will only serve to annoy/upset the many who just miss out.
