	You are absolutely right.

	I'm obviously very, very forgetful. Sorry, I took a look at users'
manuals and did not find it. Sometimes I really think I
shouldn't be working at late hours. Fortunately you *do* remember:

revision 1.49
date: 2002/05/02 16:17:43;  author: joy;  state: Exp;  lines: +0 -1
undid Javier's damage, second time

	Well. Should it be added?

	I'm starting to think that maybe I should be restricted to
spanish/ in order to not cause any more harm :(

	Problem is, it seems that nobody (besides Osamu) is working on
any totally user oriented manuals (or seems to be anyway). I'm not going
to start to whine since I'm not doing much in this area myself.

Off-topic: It it time some steped and took charge of all the documentation
stuff in order to proprely set it up (formatting issues and other areas
need yet to be cleared up and doc-policy does need a push). Do you feel
like volunteering and asking Adam to leave you the responsability?
IMHO you are doing the work he should be doing without the "official"
title (not that I de-merit the work done by Adam in other areas but he
has not done much doc-related since he was "absorbed" by boot-floppies)

	Best Regards
