Note: I changed the topic so I don't derail the distro thread with this

Excuse me? I did no such thing. This email you are quoting is from my 
"Documenting contribs" thread and has nothing to do with the linux distros. 
I certainly hope you're not suggesting the dev list be confined to one 
discussion thread at a time. I seriously doubt that's what Dries had in mind 
with his request.
