[Gluster-users] Disappointing documentation?

No, that pdf's done in docbook and there's no clean conversion to 
mediawiki. Someone was copy-pasting (often with errors) from the pdf 
into the wiki.

Somewhere along the way, the decision was made to only have an 
un-editable pdf as the only form of documentation provided by Gluster 
during the transition from their own company to being owned by Red Hat. 
I've fought and complained ever since. That's why I'm trying to start 
converting it to asciidoc and having it hosted outside the source tree. 
Not only, then, can there be a pdf, but other formats are easily 
accessible from there as well and we can all participate.
