An interesting project......

The people at are likely to come up with a solution
at some point [probably long before we have a user's manual longer than 10 

In the meantime. I think  the advantages
outweigh this problem, as the docs need to be able to evolve quickly and have 
numerous people work on them. Certainly for the developer's manual we
should move to Wiki, as it's unlikely people will be printing it
out (the main advantage of Docbook)

He has certainly done a lot of excellent work on a user's site, and I'm pleased 
to see it is quite up to
date. It also has an ability to add/edit documents online, but not as flexible 
as a 'true' wiki, I would propose
to make the "Development" link point to the wiki (a common practice on free 
software project sites)
