Thanks. I've attached the script I used to generate the wiki page in the
first place, along with an HTML version (mmm, pretty colours). To get it
working, just change the DIRECTORY variable in the script to point at
your local bzr checkout.

I also thought about the possibility of creating a copy of the current
ubuntu-codename branch, which the ubuntu-doc-students team would have
commit access to. That way, people could make corrections and update
section statuses as they went along. We could then review the changes
and selectively merge them into the main ubuntu-codename branch. Would
that be practical, do you think?

Thanks again,


Phil Bull
