Great work, John.  if the LiveCD folks need SCM-maintained
documentation, perhaps a good compromise would be using Docs CVS.  I'm
not sure that's a great solution, but it's certainly available.

This is the kind of situation that we had envisioned Plone solving --
documents could be registered in any of a variety of SCMs, edited
through the Web interface, stored appropriately in the back end as
DocBook XML, and converted to other formats as needed.  Our vision
hasn't yet resulted in anyone stepping up to do that work (which is, in
all honesty, a substantial project), but Karsten just presented this as
one of the issues at the recent Board meeting¹.
