Yes, and we haven't been as vocal about it on lfs-dev due to the fact 
that we wanted to get a working site in place before we present it 
finally to the community. It's partly due to work on this new site, a 
lack of personnel in the website team, and as you mentioned, being 
stretched a little thin that the current site hasn't been updated as 
well as it should be.

Also, LFS leadership isn't as consistent as it could be right now. I 
know that Matt is doing the best he can (not sure about Gerard's 
circumstances) but in any case, we're just managing to keep up to speed 
on LFS development let alone publicize it as it deserves.

I appreciate your interest and concern Randy, it coincides with my own. 
The current website pages (apart from the news items) are done in XHTML 
and kept in a repository. ATM, the news items are best done by 
submitting an announcement in the form of plain-text to the website list 
(make sure the announcement is approved by the project lead).

If you want to check out the repository for the current site and submit 
patches to any page (again except for news items) to the website list, 
I'm sure they'd get applied after a short review.

svn co svn://svn.linuxfromscratch.org/www/html/trunk

Again, thanks for the interest Randy. There will be an announcement made 
on the lists in the near future concerning the state of the beta site, 
the underlying technology and its ease of use (which should hopefully 
make it less of a chore to keep up-to-date) and we'll look forward to 
feedback on it.
