How about having the root directory of each subdomain pointing to the
appropriate subdirectory under www. Currently the root directory for
patches.linuxfromscratch.org is <~httpd/patches.linuxfromscratch.org>.
Instead of that if it is made to be
<~httpd/www.linuxfromscratch.org/patches> and if all the webpages only
use relative linking, then everything should work as expected. Users can
then access the site as <http://patches.linuxfromscratch.org> or

How will the website be handling the hints and the patches downloads?
Currently the hints and patches are exported from the CVS to a directory
under their respective website.
I will be working on the hint pages and the CVS this weekend. Will send
you the patches soon.
