Well, you know how I feel about using "we" in a technical
manual. :-)

But this is LFS and not BLFS and "we" has been part of the
deal since the beginning. I remember Ken M. saying he liked
it as it shows a bit of "personalizing".

However, as much as it pains me to say it, I don't hold
Gerard's technical input in this project to a very high
degree any longer anyway. I don't mean that badly. I'm
only saying he hasn't contributed anything technically
significant for many, many years.

However, I do still look at him as the project founder.
And for that alone, I hold him in high regard.
