ASF pretty much dictates that the Apache License be used.

That is a clash of psycho-epistemological Weltanschauung. A clash that
will probably remain until the diaper set are the PHBs.

If there are enough editors, etc, then all formats can be supported.  If
they aren't, then does the documentation effort support marketing AOO to
the corporate world, or marketing AOO to students, or marketing AOO to
individuals?

Thus far, the focus of the documentation project has been on supporting
the marketing of AOO to students, not individuals, and not the corporate
world.

How out of date the documentation is, depends upon what specific piece
one is looking at.

I focus on printed manuals/PDFs.

There is a fundamental disconnect between what I outlined, and The
Apache Way.

a) The emails are person to person, not person to group;
b) "You do" violates a core principle --- all are equals;
c) It requires a person who not only makes decisions, but enforces them,
_regardless_ of group input.
