I have one really good reason for this: I have asked again and again on
this list that if somebody wants to help out and start maintaining some
part of the book, he or she just have to email me and tell me what that
person wants to maintain. There are a lot of things posted to this list,
granted, but I haven't read one commitment that such a thing will be
done regularly.

Have been thinking about that yes. I wouldn't use SourceForge yet
though. I rather have Paul, if he doensn't mind, installing CVS on his
system (but it can become bandwidth consuming so perhaps one of the
mirrors can host it).

Haven't made up my mind yet though. I find it more convenient to edit
the SGML code on my own harddisk. Then again, you can just download the
SGML code, make changes and send me the diff's of them (in diff -Naur
format or diff -Naur if you need to do a recursive diff).

Jesse and I have been talking a bit about CVS. He put himself in charge
of doing some CVS research and we'll discuss it later.

Ok...I'll try to investigate that (trying to find the reason why you
don't have it. If you find the reason, though, don't forget to let us
know ;)
