I just scanned the outline a bit. I will spend more time looking at
However, after looking at for a very short time it I think I have the 
following questions:

a. Are we talking about developing a manual for Apache that resembles
   typical book format?

b. Are we interested in making the document easily searchable? Say
   a search engine such as eXcite? 

Personally, I think book-format will not be interesting since people
can just
go buy a book on Apache and its much prettier and easy to hold on your
I think the documentation project should consider:

	i. Coverage of latest and greatest modules. I seldom find modules to
	   be well documented. [Exception: Ralf's modules! :) ]

	ii. Introduction to the design of the Apache software. This is really
	    important as it is becoming more easy to tap into Apache via
	    and other modules which might allow access to Apache internals.

Well that's all I can think of for now.
