Go for it :-)

Good influences might be my Primer (ahum), and Jeff's

I would like to give it a try, but it won't be for several weeks. I also 
believe it should be something heading toward Cocoon docs CVS ASAP, so 
maybe you could as well start directly in xdoc format. Wiki is good for 
quick & dirty, but this should be quality whitepaper-ware.

Now that I have commit rights, I did some looking around in CVS - I must 
say this branch stuff makes things hard to maintain.

Possible alternative: have a separate module/directory in HEAD with a 
subdirectory per version (2.0.x and 2.1-dev) instead of using branches...

Maybe I'm contradicting my own statements regarding this when Diana 
mentioned this, dunnow anymore. I'm just throwing this up for grabs. Now 
that we have some more doco-oriented committers, maybe we have the 
momentum and the energy to continue the great work of Diana & David - 
but also the opportunity to rethink things.
