Re: Looking for some DocBook editors/contractors to help with conversion

Dear Sir,

I would be interested in helping with this task.  I maintain the
Linux FAQ in DocBook SGML, and so am familiar with the markup.
(It's on-line at http://www.mainmatter.com/linux-faq.sgml.)
I also am familiar with CVS and with many of the SGML validating
parsers.  And, of course, I have extensive experience with 
GNU software and all major distributions of Linux.

I live in Southeast Michigan, btw, but am willing to travel 
if necessary.
