No, right now we are not.

What I see as a "problem", or at least I fear it, is that 2.28 will be
out September 21st, then we will have 6 months to work on the new
"user guide". I really think we should have something in place (= a
*detailed* plan), before that date, so that soon after the release we
can start to write (or even before), review or proofread. All of this
leaves us with a little bit more than a month. And we also need to
take into account how to handle translations.

(BTW, it would be great to have a GNOME Doc session during FOSDEM
2010, I know that GNOME usually have a room there)

That would be really awesome!

Good work! I think it's shaping out quite well!

Sunday might be a too short notice, I know that Paul is traveling in
