That is really good news! Especially a chapter
was really needed. It seems to me the guide is really
getting back to shape again.

Still, I think it is not a bad idea to organize things 
differently. I do realize there might be too little people 
to appoint a maintainer for every part or chapter of the 
guide, but there might be good ways to keep the guide
up to date all the time. Submitting a diff for every spelling
or writing mistake is simply too much work. Wouldn't it
be a good idea to create an off-site CVS tree and give 
people actively involved with the guide commit access?
Then somebody with cvs access could commit
the "stable" parts in the NetBSD CVS.

With kind regards,
Daniel de Kok
