I have to agree with this, and is something I proposed 6-9 months ago.

Figure out the licensing, figure out the distribution methods, figure out
if you want to use LinuxDoc or DocBook, get it documented (see my HOWTO HOWTO)
and then tell everyone else what the decisions are.  If someone doesn't agree
with it, then it's their fault for not volunteering for the core team.

Just let us write documentation.  That *is* what we're here for, right?
