On second thought - this is causing a fragmentation for users which I 
don't like. I've allready created a page which explains how and what a 
user should download; I'm going to add the above links to those pages 
({b}lfs/packages.html). This is much more logical then the menu changes 
we've discussed.
I'm going to overrule you on this one (heh, "you'll have to pry the site 
out of my cold, dead fingers before I'm going to mess up the navigation" 
;-) )

Re, the CVS version patches: it might be nice to create this directory 
in the same way as above and give write access to book editors. They can 
then add symlinks to patches in that dir; this is both convenient to 
editors, developers and test users. Your choice of course ;)
