I am confused. I have a laptop running Debian, and I was
unaware that that was such a feat. I can see a mini HOWTO being
required for that, but a whole list? I think you would be better off
asking for interested volunteers, and going offline and creating a
HOWTO document. It not that hard to put Debian on a laptop. really.
The emacsen document, the package pool document, al handled
issues of similar or greater complexity, and were crafted by a dozen
or so people mailing each other with long To: lists ;-)
A mailing list should be reserved for long term interests. I
think a well creafted document shall obviate the need for prolonged
discussion involving laptops.
