Hello Andy!

First of all, thanks for your work.  I was considering doing it too, 
but only after presenting my M. Sc. dissertation.  I personally use 
LAM and Debian, so i would like to contribute to both projects.  

Concerning your question about the PS documents, i'll agree with
Manoj Srivastava <srivasta@datasync.com>: one idea is to separate the 
two packages: one for the sources, the other one for the 
documentation.  What do you think?

This approach is interesting since it will permit the subsequent 
additionn of LAM and MPI documents.
