a recent discussion on another list I am on mentioned frustrations at
the LDP for many of the same reasons: converting it to the 'not simple
for beginners format' Docbook - which they said the LDP did not provide
an 'example' to get a quick start. The idea of having possibly useful
info, tips, what-not and having so many barriers to 'contribute'. Seem
like they should have someone at LDP or similar to do the rough
conversion since its what they want and will be checking anyway and will
be expert creating. I hate the idea of people wishing to contribute only
to be thwarted by 'process'.
just my 2 yen.
