     44the price of beer, what hardware to buy,
     45or GNU versus BSD or Microsoft versus Linux flamewars.
     46These belong on lfs-chat,
     47and since blfs-support is high traffic,

     63the BLFS Book's maintenance.

    94 development releases as well. If a user is already on the lfs-dev
    95 list, there's little use subscribing to

    97 list will be posted to the lfs-dev list as well.</para>
