Yup, all reports should be posted here.. as for CVS, that's on hold
untill we sort out a few more issues, but i am the LFS CVS

Yes, the previous implememtations (the stuff in ALFS's CVS and the stuff
up on quasar are in perl, both done differently) but all are perl
hackers seemed to have disappeared, so unless someone stands up and
