I have to apologize with everybody.
I'm with lots of things that need to be done for releasing yesterday
and they are all late... 

I have _all_ feedback on the HOWTO with me and I'll be fixing them
all. I'm also with some informations in a draft here and they'll be
in the HOWTO. 

Please, direct all messages regarding DocBook to me and I'll explain
what you need to do or put your suggestion (if it applies) in the
HOWTO. It's a promess.

I'm "absent" in the list but I always answer my messages.

I'd say "Feedback is _needed_" ;-)

Again, send me your questions/suggestions and I'll handle them.
