The plan is to migrate all of the docs to the wiki, in hopes that
someone someday might help me write them. ;)
The master latex file is probably the one on my hard drive/checked
into source control (uhh, it was in svn, but it might not have made
it to bazaar, in which case, that's my bad and I'll see what I can
do), but despite the note, I think I have mostly imported it into the
wiki so you can take those as final for now. I'll double check when
I get home tonight.
I should probably finish writing the docs, but I'm currently hampered
by a cyst in my right hand that makes it fairly hard to type right
now, so it's kinda limited my ability to participate in much online
at the moment. I've been thinking about the mailman docs lately,
though (because I looked at them after Jennifer's post about dynamic
sublists and was depressed to realise that I hadn't written the
section she wanted yet). I'm getting adept at typing with a wrist
brace on despite the temporary disability, so poke the docs again
after this weekend and I may have the admin docs much further along.
Really! If I don't get distracted trying to write a new archive
system. (no, really, I have notes on that too!)
