   		<p>Okay, I know some of you don't like the way I'm doing the nominations. Maybe foolishly I thought since it worked very well for Seth with regards to the FAQ that it might work for LFS as a whole as well. Seeing the fact I've only gotten nominations from 9 people so far, I'm beginning to think people don't care about who will be chosen, or nobody is nominating because they don't like the way I'm doing it and are trying to make a point. Whatever the cause might be, I will of course take those 9 people into consideration, but will probably have to pick a team of people by myself. People who have been away and haven't had the chance to do anything yet, I'm not speaking to you, so don't take offense.</p>
   		<p>For the record I'd like to tell you guys that I don't want to hear complaints about the fact that the community was not involved in selecting the coordinators and that I'm being selfish, still want to do things on my own and can't let go, etc (yes these are all things I've heard before in recent weeks and I'm anticipating hearing them again.

   		<p>I was doing some thinking about the current state of LFS.  As it stands right now, we have CVS making a pretty stable build, very few truly outstanding issues in the building itself.  But, coming soon, we have a LOT of things to get ready for - namely 2.6.0, gcc 3.3.1, the new XML, and probably lots of other things I haven't thought of (including NPTL when it's ready).</p>
   		<p>I think now might be the time to get the text in line with the commands again, and put out an interim LFS 4.2 with the current packages and build process.  Then, take CVS into a heavy development stage, trying to get ready for some of the above mentioned things.</p>
