Already there are many interesting documents at the OSWG but can
we assume the distribution people will bundle this too? Also we
should keep the end users in mind, will they know to look into
not only the old /usr/doc/HOWTO but now also /usr/doc/OSWG or
wherever these will go?

All in all it would be simplest if it could be all bundled into
one directory, for all parties involved. It is however important
to make sure we make it clear we are not trying to hijack the
OSWG so I urge to proceed with care.

I am confident some are thinking about this issue but how many
are left out? Check the list in the left column:
and ask yourself how many of these maintainers are subscribed
here and keep up to date with LDP and OSWG?

One solution would be LDP making the .rmp .deb and .tgz packages
of the archives so the packagers could just copy it into the
respective distributions.
