Yes Gerard puts LFS-3.0-CVS files in the FTP archive but in their own 

the other dirs are strictly 2.4.4

it will contain whatever is in the current book (not cvs book). now all we 
need to do is fix up the profiles to use bz2 extensions and proper versions 
(i believe the profles may stil be partly 2.4.2/2.4.3)
