It would be one less hurdle.
(And I agree that docbook processing is another one)

Whoever is in charge of this project. Simple decision by them.
*but* we need a 'holding area', i.e. somewhere unauthorised writers
can drop material off, in the hope that its not porn and will be
accepted. The barrier needs to be there for quality, not for content.

I must agree on the thread comments about the fedora-docs home page.
E.g. Google has a hard time finding it.
There is no link to actual 'this is what's been done so far'

Not even linked from this page?
  Are there any requests out for document review? I can't recall any.
Suggest add the project home page link as a footer to all these emails.
(Helps with googling)

Is that a documentation page for fedora?
There's a link to rh9 doco.
No document list... 
  What is that page for please?

Which nav bar?
I'd not thought of xversion issues. How is it managed in 7,8 9 rh?
Separate suites? Review then copy/amend over to the next rev?
Makes the entity set quite important?
