Just a suggestion, considering everything works out tomorrow CVS will be
installed on mickey and cvs.linuxfromscratch.org will go online, i still
have to talk to Bryan, but he mentioned OAsis (a web-base CVS view ala
cvsweb developed by the CVS maintainers) which looks very promising.

Whomever takes over control (it doesn't have to be one person, this way,
we could easilly have multiple developers for the Hints, until the LFS
InfoSys is working) could use CVS, all Gerard would have todo (heck i'll
do it if he doesn't mind :) is make an extra cron job every 12 hours...
if you want the latest hints, download them from CVS, else the new ones
will be online in less then 12 hours...

Dunno... just a suggestion ;)
