Actually, that's probably the most sensible suggestion I've heard in a
while.  It would avoid having to keep resyncing the data (I noticed that
lfs-chat is missing from the BLFS ML Page the other day; I still haven't
got round to adding it).

Alternatively, we could store the information on shadowfax and simply
have a cronjob which converts it into the required format (HTML /
Docbook XML) and commits it to cvs once a day if something has changed.
That way, it'll always be up-to-date.

Which way would people prefer?
