 		<p>A lot of stuff has happened recently, so I'll try to summarize it a bit for those who haven't followed the development lists closely.</p>
-		<p>First of all, we finally have a "second man" in place who can make the same decisions as Gerard would normally make. Since Gerard has been very busy due to work and personal stuff, Matthew Burgess will be the second in command, which should take care of the most important "single point of failure" in LFS :-). </p>

 		<p>Secondly, LFS has moved to a three-tier development system modelled after Debian. We now have a stable branch (currently 5.0, will be 5.1 very soon), which is basically the released version. The testing branch functions much like the CVS version; this is supposed to be a functioning LFS system with upgraded packages, designated to become the new stable branch. The unstable branch is used for bleeding-edge development and replaces the recent BE-LFS book. This model also nicely fits the mailing lists: lfs-support for stable, lfs-dev for testing and lfs-hackers for unstable. The website and roadmap will soon reflect these changes. BLFS will track the testing branch in their CVS book.</p>
 		<p>There are some more changes planned which should strengthen the project. A migration to Subversion is planned for the near-future. Subversion is a version control system like CVS, but without the major annoyances of CVS. Also planned for the website is a migration from the current scripted system to a Wiki solution with CMS capabilities. This will greatly simplify news management and open up the website for a broader public. The planned system is <a href="http://twiki.org">TWiki</a>, which is also succesfully used at <a href="http://www.freedesktop.org">Freedesktop</a>.</p>
 		<p>Lastly, the LFS server somehow got rebooted on may 5th, which caused a downtime of the website and the news server. The mailinglists restarted gracefully, with the exception of lfs-dev. The news server is still down but will resume operation as soon as possible.</p>
