Subject RE: Bibliography format question

I completely agree with those who said that if you're starting this, you have real decision
power.   And a pdf output would be just fine for casual readers.

I suppose the only alternative that I might suggest is looking into what wiki tools are available
to us.   A wiki page would be friendlier for cross-contributions and may also provide space
for commenting (discussion tab?).   It also probably has a good citation mechanism.

But then, I'm not familiar with the wiki that Apache uses... and I maybe don't have a 100%
clear idea of what you have in mind that would require the use of LaTex, so cavaets abound.

Subject: Bibliography format question

My next step on the distributed, fault tolerant transaction management 
issue will be to wrote an annotated bibliography. Designing and proving 
correctness of protocols and algorithms in this area is not easy, so it 
is worth some reading and library search time to make sure we benefit 
from all available research.

Is there is preferred way of doing this? Left to myself, I would use 
BibTex for the references, and write the notes in LaTex.

Is anyone else likely to want to edit the document? If so, what are 
their opinions about the document and bibliography format? Is there an 
Apache way of doing something like this?

Regardless of the source format, the document will be available as a 
.pdf file, so anyone can use it.
