I'm watching this thread and thinking, "This document is a good start to a 
User Guide."

Since we are so close to Hoary release and this document was created on Warty, 
I think we should target this type of document for Grumpy. I believe the User 
Guide will be one of the projects to complete for Grumpy. While the efforts 
on this document are much appreciated, and I can see much work has gone into 
it, I would like to suggest that such effort be focused on the User Guide in 
SVN. I think it would be better to have everyone focused on developing one 
document instead of everyone developing their own document in Wiki or on some 
external resource.

People thoughts?
