Thanks Matthew.

The intention of the original post was as well to spark the discussion
on the current issues and how to deal with them.

What do you guys think the best way forward for the Ubuntu Docs in Natty
is? Do you have any comments on some of the options Shaun presented?

I think it might be useful to start with a list or summary of pending
issues and options to get Ubuntu Docs in Natty, and then work out the
plan to solve them.

Another idea might be to organize a docs team meeting to discuss all
this, which I believe would be quite useful.

What do you think?

Regards,
David.
