"And" is fine. I don't feel that the PostgreSQL team has the authority
to make this decision or to make the contact (and no fair saying "you
now have the authority" ;) but we would be happy to participate in the
contact and to co-sign it. Is that sufficient?

Also, in previous contacts with an individual LDP representative, he
expressed interest in incorporating a much larger portion of the
PostgreSQL docs. imho our current Linux FAQ + all of the docs covers
Linux well, but it may be better to expand the FAQ to cover at least
some common topics and to be more closely cross-referenced to the other
documents. We would be happy to take suggestions from the LDP community
on form and content.
