The intent is to use documentation to find the relevant standard to document
That way we are always pushing in the direction of actual standards except
where we choose not to (eg if they are simply too silly for words)

Also Stuart will be working from other lists (he's provisionally the
documentation chair and appears to have more years standards body
experience than I do Linux). I think we are in good hands between us.
If people want to get involved in side aspects we do need to find a way
to document some key additional libraries (libdb etc) and appropriate
free documentation for them. So if you are keen and want to pick off a
small library for lunch let me know
