Thanks for your quick reply.
I am working on part 2, of Jeremy's earlier e-mail.
You did part 1, and yes that is now finished and frozen.
And thanks for your hard work on that.
Sorry, I dropped the bigger context. I'll re-include
the part2 portion:

I have not been successful in generating the html stuff, hence
my e-mails the last couple of days.
To be clear, I am leaving the ubuntu-docs portion of this "part 2"
work to someone else. I am doing the serverguide part.

Now, that I begin to figure this stuff out (or so I think). I will
volunteer to do the EOF update.
