Only to with happy 13th to LFS too. It's an occasion for me to say
"thanks" to this marvelous project. Thanks to all the team who maintain
it, in all its components (blfs, lfs, alfs). I find this project great
and I hope I'll help it. I hope we'll be able to write again in 13 years
to say that lfs still is maintained and as dynamic as today.

Thanks all editors and contributors! I will help you as much as I can!
