Hey, that's cool. Thanks for volunteering. Since I've not got a clear
idea of how to define the problem, maybe you need to explain what sort
of information you need to get started on this.

In general, as you've probably noticed from this thread, we're looking
for the best way to organize the GNOME docs information on the web site.
This is largely user docs we've been writing to be accessed as desktop
help through Yelp. But we're now in a position to expand the universe to
other user docs and developer docs.

In my naive thinking, we'd have a directory structure something like

all user docs
	gnome applets
	gnome-user-docs (includes users guide and other bits
developer docs
	api docs
		gtk api
		gnome-xml api
		libxslt api
	development tutorials

My thinking is clearly based on an organizational structure that mirrors
the way we organize stuff now in CVS, but I'm clearly not wedded to
this. Ideas welcome, as well as advice on what you need to know to
proceed with this.
