I can provide some information on the status....
We need to establish a decent processing environment on our host
machine (metalab.unc.edu). We're in the process of doing that.
I now realize the extreme pain the authors have to go thru wrt
sgml-tools, etc.! I'm in the process of constructing
a mechanism for taking either linuxdoc (supported by the old
sgml-tools, pre 1.1) *and* DocBook SGML (using jade/DSSSL/etc. -
all the tools and processes recommended in Jorge's HOWTO). It's
been my own personal nightmare. ;-)
Once that is in place, we should be able to efficiently process
HOWTOs in a timely fashion.
Yes we should have a means for allowing people to view the queue,
although I would *hope* (once the env is in place), that something
submitted would be processed in less than 24 hours, if not immediately
Greg Leblanc has a plan(?) to update the CVS server from metalab.
We can also automate that thru a cron script at some point. He can
speak to the mechanism.
Guylhem and Jorge can probably add to this...
