I thought it might be a fine idea to get "spot's" stuff from the Wiki
integrated in it wherever necessary and reasonable; that may already be
done, but I haven't read through the whole thing.  Certainly we're happy
to house it, as long as there's a mintainer! :-)  There are a few docs
people who are maintainers in Extras CVS, so certainly someone can be
roped into helping out.

That sounds great to me.  

We have a steering committee meeting this afternoon, and I'll work on
getting some additional components that are appropriate for this kind of
bug, and post here to the list with a Cc to you. Then you can file the
bug under Fedora Documentation with summary "New document: Packagers
Handbook" or some such.

Cool, thanks for the info.  I am not a big CVS junkie, so I didn't even
realize one could do this!

I removed him from Cc on this thread, thanks.
