Unfortunately the version for MM is not up yet, and I don't know when it
is expected. But I do know that the doc team (server guide,the above web
sites) and the manual team are attempting to share a common content

h.u.c and w.u.c. You can look at the ubuntu-doc mail list archive for
the on going discussions.
