The list is generated on anduin daily, but the master repository is at 
Oregon State University.  When I update the master, I check things like 
md5sum and make sure the file is placed in the right directory.

The structure of the files is somewhat complicated.  For instance, the 
perl modules are all in one subdirectory.  There is also a tree of 
symbolic links from svn to the conglomeration.  The old svn links have 
to be deleted and new ones added when a package is updated.  I do have a 
script that I wrote to help, but there are enough exceptions that each 
package update has to be checked manually.

To see the structure, take a look at ftp://anduin.linuxfromscratch.org/BLFS/
