You are, how do you say?, "spot on."  Can't argue with the facts,
although I'm trying to figure out how I, at least, can be a conduit to
get documentation into Fedora.  Still, that's not a scalable model, eh?

My concern right now, though, is this: what if open CVS access were done
tomorrow?  How ready are we for it?

1. What is our process to decide who gets write access to fedora-docs?

2. What should be in there _right_now_ that is not?

3. What bugs are there to fix in the existing documentation, so
contributors can start working on them?

4. What should be on the pages _right_now_?

4.1 How are we going to manage multiple documents across multiple
versions?  The left hand navigation bar is going to fill up pretty
quickly at this rate.

As for 1, I haven't the foggiest idea what Cristian's process is going
to be.  We should at least discuss it, though.  The other items are
something we can do something about.
