If I get some material which is up to date, we can definitely get it
onto the 6.10 page. At the moment, the book extracts are based on 6.06.
Only some of it is 6.06 specific though (such as the dist-upgrade
section), so we can think about putting a link to the 6.06 version on
the 6.10 page. What do people think?

Yay. Who should I ask for review/approval/implementation of this?

Yes, we should amend that link to point at https://help.ubuntu.com/6.10.
I'll make a note to poke Seb before release when the page exists.
