- With many potential files/HOWTOs, these additional sub-directories
(PDF, text, etc) will be virtually unnoticed. We need to provide
pointers to the sub-directories within the index.html files.
- Will we utilize the single-page HOWTOs or the multi-page HOWTOs?
- What about HOWTOs that currently are contained in their own
sub-directory? We need to consider that (all DocBook-authored
HOWTOs are like that).
- Need to provide a commonly-shared image directory, such as what
we have now on www.linuxdoc.org (for call-outs, etc). Should be
at the same level as the other sub-dirs (unless we munge the
HTML to convert links/references).
- I can get you a file-count if need be (I need to know if the single
or multi-page variants will be used).

> PDF/ - same HOWTOS but as PDF
- Contains gzipped tar files or exploded (SGML) text + graphics files
for each HOWTO? Again, possibly in their own sub-dirs.
- Do we need a split for linuxdoc v. docbook (?):
- Is it just me, or is anyone else annoyed by upper/mixed-case? :-)
I'd personally like to see lower-case used for all the sub-dir names,
but that's simply a personal preference.
- What goes in the 'HTML' directory, given that all HTML HOWTOs will
be in /usr/share/HOWTO ? Is it still necessary?
> GUIDES/ - the Guides in HTML format
- Again, a decision on upper/lower/mixed case..perhaps:
HOWTO, FAQ, guides, etc. Again, my personal preference.

All links on www.linuxdoc.org are currently relative (and work
in a local/non-web-server environment). We needed to have it this
way for our mirror sites.

Very good idea.

I hate to switch gears, but was there ever any resolution or
follow-up on the c.o.l.a posting problem?
