Do you want to create it or do you want me to do it?  Either way is OK.

OK.  We can always adjust the site as needed.

I've never liked GNOME, but use some of the apps.  I used to use KDE, 
but the later versions seemed klunky and bloated.  I now use xfce with a 
few kde apps and an occasional gmome app.

I prefer working from the Trac tickets.  I don't see much there that I 
use regularly, but I can do some of those.  If there are additional 
tickets created I can probably work some of those.

I may create some scripts to check the latest packages for at least some 
of the packages in BLFS similar to the one in LFS that I just did. 
Perhaps a script for each Part (12 scripts) may be useful.
