  -BLFS-BOOK (Beyond LFS).  If problems with the book come up, a bug
  -or two need to be
  -reported, or suggestions to improve the book (such as suggestions as to
  -installation instructions to add) are to be made, this mailing list

  +the BLFS Book's maintenance.
  +Traffic on it is mostly Bugzilla and CVS commit messages.

  -software explicitly mentioned in the BLFS book, any software beyond that
  -installed as part of the base LFS system can be discussed here.</para>
  +<para>The lfs-chat list is the place for community chatter.
  +It's a place where anything goes, nothing is off-topic.
  +You can discuss the price of beer or what hardware to buy.
  +Even GNU versus BSD and Microsoft versus Linux flamewars
  +are okay in lfs-chat.</para>

  -LFS system as far as the end of the main book.  Requests for help with
  -installing software beyond the base system should go to the blfs-support
  -list.</para>

  -<para>The lfs-announce list is a moderated list. It can be subscribed
  -to, but
  -you can't post any messages to this list. This list is used to announce
  -new stable releases. The lfs-dev list will carry information about
  -development releases as well. If a user is already on the lfs-dev
  -list, there's little use subscribing to
  -this list as well because everything that is posted to the lfs-announce
  -list will be posted to the lfs-dev list as well.</para>
