I do not particularly like the idea of maintaining a
seperate CVS server just for the Guide.

Right now I have not had a problem getting changes in.
Sometimes it takes up to 2-3 days but it is not like
_not_ having a change in is going to break the system
Like I have said before though, if the Guide grows
to a point where my coordinating updates becomes unwieldy,
I will certainly begin doling out chapters or even entire
subject matter to other people.
I do realize right now it appears that I am one level deep
for coordinating content updates, I will see if I can coerce some other
developers into assissting me for when I am on holiday or
