Sounds good.

I don't think that the tech review material should be put in with the
DocBook editing stuff because people can review the documentation
without concerning themselves with DocBook (e.g. via h.u.c) and because
the article would end up being too long. Perhaps it would go with the
"Checking" section instead?
