I first brought this specific book project up on this list on 15
February, at which time there was a bit of discussion but no one came
forth to actually do any work. I also brought it up at ODFAuthors,
with similar lack of response. So I forged ahead on my own. On 4 April
I asked for reviewers on both this list and ODFAuthors. I may be
wrong, but I think that was before the RC prep cycle.

My note at the start of this thread was as much to do with the lack of
interest (at ODFAuthors as well as here) from people to work on
preparing the drafts, as it was about lack of reviewers. The lack of
techwriters could be due to any number of factors, but the nett result
is as I mentioned in my first note on this thread.
