Unfortunately the impression I got was that the new LDP has a gotten the
focus of LDP completely wrong. Instead of focusing on the documentation
aspect of the project by providing the best documentation possible e.g.
making the life of the authors easier LDP chooses to concentrate on
completely superficial things such as the graphic layout of the web site.
The CVS we are told will be up in about three weeks while an existing CVS
site (metalab) is turned down. So I feel there is a pattern already 
showing and based on my previous experience I feel that there is a high
probability history will repeat itself.

I am not planning on abandoning my documents, they simply will not be
available through LDP. I think there are couple of promising new projects
that seem to be more in tune with their authors.
