Hi Ahmed,

Is there a general idea of what level we ought to be aiming the 
documentation at?  There is a bunch of things that could be added to the 
MySQL section, for example, without turning it into a full on MySQL 
Guide (unless that's what we're aiming at?).  Currently it's focussed 
along the lines of 'this is how you install it, start it and a couple of 
minor tweaks'.  It could be filled out with brief discussion of the 
different storage engines provided by the packages, their strengths and 
weaknesses etc.  The approach seems to vary between different sections 
of the documentation, and even within the same chapter.  It would seem 
in general that the database section is woefully lacking in detail 
compared to other chapters.
