The BLFS Editors are in the process of constructing a new Web/FTP server 
to host LFS/BLFS source code.  Right now the organization of the site is 
quite crude (non-existent).  We are looking for suggestions about how to 
set it up.  Our thought is to do something like:

      [all lfs sources/patches]
      [all sources/patches, links to 6.0 where appropriate]
      [all sources/patches, links to 6.0/6.1 where appropriate]
       Part II
       Part III
       Part ...


We are not planning on saving historical versions of packages, but its 
possible we might want to do that if the demand is there.  We don't have 
a space problem as there is at least 40Gb free right now.

It's an open question whether we put the books themselves on the site 
because they are really mirrored fairly well right now.

The BLFS book probably should not point to this site for the individual 
packages, but we are planning to put in a section saying that the site 
is available, but the references to the original sources are in the book 
for researching different versions of the packages.

Any opinions or thoughts will be appreciated.
