(I'm only quoting your whole message because I'm
cc'ing it to discuss@linuxdoc.org.)

Have you considered writing this as an LDP Guide?

* Harness the incredible power of a virtual army of
LDP volunteers. (Well, a virtual platoon...)
* The docs become print-ready as well.
* DocBook is a standard! Yay standards!
* Use the already-present distribution network the LDP
has in place.

* Your formatting looks spiffier than the LDP
* You'd have to rewrite what you have.
* DocBook is not tailored to your purposes.
* Multiple versions will exist throughout the world.

I believe it's an alternative worth considering. I'd
be willing to convert what you already have to
