The end user documentation is in subversion now.  The format driver
documents are plain html, and the utility docs are processed through

I imagine quite a bit of auxilary documentation for end users growing
in the wiki as well.

I am interested in providing commit access to those interested in working
on the documentation.  In the meantime, you can send improvements through
bugzilla/trac to be applied.  When that gets annoying someone will propose
you for commit access. :-)
