[Fwd: Re: Laptop Guide]

I'm forwarding this to the list because I'm concerned that we may have a
problem with documents getting lost when they are submitted.

Does anybody know what's going on?

(btw, I got the author's permission before forwarding this.)

Hi David,

just a first answer, more details soon. I have submitted all of
my HOWTOs to the LDP many times. Usually they got lost. I have
complained to the LDP maintainers, to the LDP mailing list, ...
with no success yet. So I have decided to make my own way. 
But I'm still interested to go back to the LDP. For the IR-HOWTO
, the Ecology-HOWTO and the Medicine-HOWTO I'm in the process
to convert them to DocBook and will be out soon (hopefully).

For the Mobile-Guide I'm unsure whether to go back to the LDP.
Because it's the basis of my book. Don't want to get trouble
with publishers.

Anyway thank you for your friendly response.
