Chris, do you know perl much? The counter is written in perl, so it's
hard for me to debug. The problem with clfs-svn, hlfs-svn, etc. is
that they title corresponds to a generic "cvs" value. I think this is
because the script is only generating real values for the numeric
regex's and then lumping everything else into "cvs". If you look at
the HTML source that's generated from the script, you'll see this:

<option value="6.1">6.1</option>
<option value="6.1.1">6.1.1</option>
<option value="cvs">SVN</option>
<option value="cvs">hlfs-svn</option>
<option value="cvs">clfs-svn</option>

Damn it. Now I also noticed that you can't query for the first LFS
version being 6.2. I don't know what's going on with that. If you want
to look at the script, I can show you where it is on belg, or I can
attach it. The perl is fogging my eyes. I tried to put it under
version control, but the version used on the website doesn't get
updated due to the way the scripts are setup in lizardo's directory.

As for the wrong links on the page, I found the css template, but it's
owned by jhuntwork. Someone with some privelages needs to make it
group writable so I can work on it.
