You've discovered my secret scheme.

From what I saw yesterday, we are basically on that track.  Focused on
fixing the problems, making consistent how-to over what-is, pushing
what-is content out to a reference guide where appropriate, and stubbing
out pages for the KDE content.

So, what I think we are doing is making room for KDE content, should
someone be interested in that.  I guess that differs from your
recommendation in that you wouldn't even give lip-service to the KDE
content at this point.  Fair enough.

OK, I'm going to accept this as meaning we are done with our work for
test4 and moving on.  Let me know if I missed anything here; hoping not
to get any last-minute realizations that we missed the mark entirely.

FLOSS is experimenting and learning.  Now we know. :)

There are a lot of people who have expressed interest in the
Administration Guide.  Now is the time to "form like Voltron" and get it
done.  You could be releasing beta in time for F7.
