Sure. :)

I think this *is* within the scope of the cataloging effort, which is
really a meta-data effort as well as strictly a cataloging effort. I will
not maintain a separate contact list for HOWTOs, but rather devise a means
of extracting this information directly from the SGML of the HOWTOs. I'm
working on scripts to do this right now.
