Maybe a complete list once a week, and a sort of diff [a diff between
diff files? hmm..] every day? And maybe make the list available via ftp
Or just post the whole thing every day, that gives us an incentive to
keep the list short by compiling stuff :-)
FWIW: I've been compiling most of the mail section last night, and that
went reasonably OK. However, I discovered (of course, at the end) that
I'd been running a 2.1.87 kernel instead of 2.0.3x. I don't think this
influences the compilation of packages much, however; am I right in
thinking this? Anyway, I'll upload what I have to
