That sounds good to me.
Currently, f13/f14 have 4.6 and rawhide has 4.8, so there will be
differences. It would be good to keep them seperate and work on them
I like the idea of writing up drafts and getting it put together
before we import it into publican to allow widespead docs. :)
Sounds good. I will start splitting wiki into stable and rawhide. If
anyone else wants to help feel free to email me and we can figure out
where each other left off. I will start write ups on rawhide and a
user-guide asap as well.
