That's wasn't my idea either ;-) I just meant that the specific parts of
documentation that are relevant to the server environment.

Sorry, I really don't understand what you mean (the last sentence) but
would like to give some input and maybe contribute to the documentation.
Maybe you could clarify (ie. give a specific example) of server
documentation. I don't have access to an ubuntu-server now so it would
help if you could give an example of how the documentation is accessed
at this point in time, and how the documentation looks.
I assumed the documentation was taken from various sources (official
documentation, wiki, forum) and manually put together in (text-only)
html pages (or something similar) with an index. That's why I suggested
to focus on the actual documentation first before putting alot of effort
into gathering/converting it for use in a server environment without X.
Some examples would make this discussion alot easier and may encourage
people like me to start contributing documentation.
