[This note is being sent to a small set of individuals and to a
  couple of lists (e.g., fsb) that I believe to be appropriate. -r]

I have made a number of changes to my draft paper

   "Integrating package management and documentation"

If you are interested in looking it over, please do so.  Direct
any responses to me, however, rather than to mailing lists, etc.


P.S.  Here's an excerpt:

   Bob Young, of Red Hat, compares binary software distributions to
   cars that have the "hood welded shut". Access to source code "opens
   the hood", but it is far from a complete solution. Without
   comprehensive documentation, it can lead to wasted effort,
   frustration, and error.
