Ok. Let's do it this way, which I think is better:
host patches for the LFS/BLFS books like this:
Maintaining patches in these directories can be handled with symlinks to
the original location, Gerard recently enabled this on the server.
I will add a link in LFS, BLFS and Hints under the Download section to
add a link for CVS on the CVS information page. How's that?

Ok that's fine by me. I'll remove it completely from the page then.

Maybe for the next summer holiday :)

Ah yes - that list /should/ be generated automatically. Untill then,
we'll need to patch it everytime you add a hint. Can you whip up a patch
(or tell me which hints need to be added)?
