I am BASH-positive. About PHP... PHP/5.1, 5.2-dev, 6.0-dev installed...
Most of my time in PHP for more then two years. Some time spent on Java,
but it's all the same. I've even done some C, but never got to C++ as I
didn't need to.

Yeah, give us chance to participate. Let's bring it to real life! There
are some things I'd like to see in HLFS... Xorg/7.1, latest udev and
UTF-8 for ncurses. Non-english locales sucks (and I'm from Czechia).
