In light of that I'd suggest Simon be in charge of the hints again as he used 
to. Fabio, don't get me wrong, it's not that I don't trust you or don't like 
you or anything like that, but just that Simon has had the most experience 
with the hints so far and has some great ideas too. Fabio, if you want you 
can still help out on the hints, but co-ordinate it with Simon. If you guys 
want it, I can get you a lfs-hint mailinglist where you can discuss those 
type of things.
