Well, we can, but one way or another we will not just replace the
current site without community input. Or will we? Jeremy, any
suggestions on how to handle this?

The way I see it, we have two options:

1) Fix the release-stopping issues with the current site, keep it on
www.linuxfromscratch.org, and upon LFS 6.1 release, present
beta.linuxfromscratch.org for community input.
2) Replace www with beta *before* LFS 6.1 release and present it public
review directly on www.

Although personally I'd like to see (2) done, I should remember of an
important issue: we still have not notified mirrors admins about the
plans to add SSI as a requirement for mirroring. If LFS 6.1 is to be
released RSN, I'm afraid we don't have enough time to do so.

I'll soon do a test putting a test HTML page with SSI code to see how
many of the current mirrors have SSI support enabled already.

Bruce's SBU measurements?

Wouldn't it be better to have:


instead, so we keep each sub-project's data on its own directory?

If they are produced by automated build scripts, it seems logical to me
put them somewhere on the ALFS section. Otherwise, we might need a
separate section for them. Are these build logs strictly for LFS
packages? Where they are referenced in the book?

What about creating a "Resources" subsection for the projects that
reference external LFS-related information? E.g. for LFS, we would have:
