Since it was probably my suggestion of a wiki version that has caused
some confusion I should mention that I also agree there should only be
one 'official' version. However much of my background in online writing
is based on work with http://indymedia.org and their documentation
project http://docs.indymedia.org . So collaborative effort is something
I believe strongly in and have seen the fruits of - but I'm
digressing...

Of course wiki is unsuited to an 'official' version, but is DocBook
really suited, as Gustavo wonders, to an email list users guide?

I'm inclined to feel that the 'official' version should be plain ascii -
after all that's what we want people to use on the list. All other forms
can then be derivatives of that.

Or would it work for the 'official version to be DocBook which can
generate a txt file?

hmmm, not sure myself
