Since Thomas Chung gave me the go-ahead, I took that as agreement that
my initial
plan to move it directly under the LiveCD wiki entry was the way to go.

Therefore, I moved it to that location. I viewed it as a "donation" to
the Live CD project, just like I did some summaries for the "Extras"
project. Of course, it is a living document, so I promised to "adopt"
it by keeping it in sync with any future READMEs.

It was essentially a wikification of a README , so I viewed it
differently from the Software Management Guide, for example.

I guess it comes down to the best way to maintain the doc. I just saw
it as a very valuable piece of information that should be published
quickly, which will be subject to a lot of rapid revisions - perfect
for a Wiki entry. Once the Live CD Tools are stable, then, I agree,
there should be a more formal procedure in place.

If you think we can do both at once - rapid updates and storing it as
DocBook - I'm OK with that, but I will need a bit of assistance until
I get the process down.
