Did we reach a consensus? Not sure, to be honest.
As leader writer, I proposed that we keep it together, with
cross-links and a clear direction where to go regarding each desktop
manager and what apps are shared in common, such as OpenOffice,org and
My opinion is to put it all in one guide. Use a regular structure that
presents information in the same order:
That's my view.

That is more work for not any more benefit (that I can see.)
Let's concentrate on the integrated DUG. Later on, if we want a
tailor-made guide for a given LiveCD, for example, we can excerpt it
from the main guide.

Also remember not to duplicate what is already in the GNOME and KDE User
Guides. We can cover something with a sentence and a pointer (deep
link) the appropriate upstream guide.
Agreed. The perfect example are the common apps. We might have
something on how to launch them in the common section and point to
that from each desktop manager section - just one approach.
