I think a good documentation is most important. Normally I only use
forums or mailing lists, if there is no answer in the doc or maybe in
the wiki.

I did a little research on documentation formats and posted the
corrected files a week ago.
I attached the files, so you don't have to search them.

The thing I realized during the research was, that managing a
documentation is not a trivial job.

I think we should start a new doc mailing list and try to find a
solution with the people who wants to help in this subject and the
cooperating with the devs and the web-team.

The Documentation of Freebsd in case of a classical documentation
(Handbook pdf and html) and the german ubuntuusers-wiki
(http://wiki.ubuntuusers.de/Startseite) are good examples for good and
helpful documentations.

I think it is a better solution to make a decision in the group than
trying a huge amount of different systems by single persons.
