Well, iirc, it doesn't announce blfs, hints etc... things (only lfs) - But not sure about this.. correct me if I'm wrong.

So IMO, lfs-announce is kinda fine (at least w/ me)

> lfs-book -> lfs-dev

Well, lfs-book is almost only getting bugzilla and freshmeat spam. I personaly wouldn't want lfs-dev to be polluted with this even if it's related.

Perhaps it should be lfs-book -> lfs-bug eh?

lfs-chat look cuter than a dull 'chat' (now thats an argument ;)

> blfs-book -> blfs-dev

same as for lfs-book/dev

Doing such a small change would only annoy people ;) - (e.g. redo their sorting and possiblity re-subscribe) Doesn't worth it heh.

> hints [should be made public]

In the past I couldn't subscribe to it either but now I can and I am. (And I'm part of the public AFAIK... well I think (can someone confirm this? ;) )

There's 'test-list' that exist. (Or did you mean to 'rename it to?')

Unsubscribe: send email to listar at
and put 'unsubscribe lfs-chat' in the subject header of the message
