No, alas it is quite common ; I think we free software documentation
authors suffer from a kind of inferiority complex.

Therefore we can only shout and complain about how bad the things are,
what is not done...

It's amazing authors have time enough to bash the documentation project
that distributes their docs (whichever is the DP) but have no time to
help it.

Maybe the DocBook fans didn't hear Jorge Godoy, our new DocBook
coordinator would open a DocBook section soon, with DocBook-only
documents, DocBook versions of the currently available HOWTOs and a
HOWTO-DocBook explaining how to write DocBook documents

Oh, I forgot it's 'easier said than done'
