Agreed. Please work with me (the Developer's Reference maintainer).
I gladly accept and integrate suggstions and patches. I can provide
you with near-live CVS access too, if you're really "gung-ho". Just
contact <firstname.lastname@example.org>, or better yet,
submit bugs against the package.
BTW, I do poll <debian-mentors> now and then, looking for suitable
topics for inclusion in the Reference. Right now I'm a little
back-logged on that count.
