LFS website empty

Hi guys,

before a long time, I downloaded the LFS 6.1 book and completed 90% of installing and then, I could not continue because of some reasons.

Actually, making LFS system really helped me a lot enriching my knowledge and skills regarding linux in general.

Now I want to continue from where I left or may be again from scratch with lfs 6.2 , but I found that the is empty i only find there some statistics and nothing else.

Is the homepage moved to some other url or the proejct is closed ? I hope it is not closed.

No, it hasn't been closed and it hasn't moved either.

This has happened before. Just wait it will probably be up soon again.

In the mean time you can use

Why does the site have to be down... <cries in a corner>

was building cross-linux from scratch and got to this page:

Trying to build xorgv7 and needed the 4 patches listed there, but all I got was a "Page Not Found" thing and anything that I clicked on just led back there, even the little "contact the webmaster" link...

Any ideas as to how long this will last?
