David Lawyer looked at what he had drafted in 2001 for the "Overview" part of the Manifesto and edited it a little to reflect the current situation http://lists.tldp.org/index.cgi?1:mss:9693:200510:claiepedajakajhoajgg. The revised version is available for comment and David posted a version http://lists.tldp.org/index.cgi?1:mss:9761:200510:ngajkeenpiioblmendee asking if discuss list is OK with it.
Scot Stevenson started http://lists.tldp.org/index.cgi?1:mss:9709:200510:mjolkcjnjbginkhagjki started a discussion on why the LDP should start supporting AsciiDoc as one of the acceptable formats. Since Scot talked about LinuxDoc, David Lawyer put down his thoughts on the issue and said that the LDP could revive LinuxDoc.
David Lawyer, while discussing the draft of the Introduction to the LDP Manifesto, said "we did change was our URL from linuxdoc.org to tldp.org. But the old URL still works (I just tried it). So I'm in favor of continuing to use LDP and to not object if people call us TLDP. LDP has a lot of name recognition in printed books. If you look at our doc, there's several times more mention of LDP than TLDP. So it's not too late to go back to LDP. LDP is also used a lot on our website along with TLDP". Several people http://lists.tldp.org/index.cgi?1:sss:9730:200510:pgfjjcaefnhkbdlhllan were in favour of using LDP and Guylhem P. Aznar said that tldp.org was choosen because ldp.org was not available.
