I've had a read of the OPL, am I able to choose options with the license?

That's ok, I knew what Paul meant.

The document didn't get submitted last year because I didn't have time
to bring it up to the latest version (FC4) and to then start preparing
for the next revision before it's scheduled release.

May I suggest that we possibly prepare this document "as is" for FC5,
obvioulsy fixing any major technicalities, and then start working on the
next revision ready for the final release of FC6. This may also allow me
time to finish off the extra 3 chapters on my TODO list.

My wiki account is "MilesBrennan" and my cvsdocs is "mbrennan" (waiting
I hope you have a good backup, I have used neither of these before ;-)
