I agree with Daniel point of view about a more wiki style. I am one of
sysadmins in the biggest italian debian community (debianizzati.org): in the
next days we will open a topic to discuss the opportunity to take part in
the ISP project as a community project. Of course I'll let you know about
the conclusions we'll hopefully reach.

>> Dear list,
>> I'm considering to give up working on the ISPmail tutorial. It has taken
>> me months to complete the Squeeze tutorial up to the point where it is
>> now. User feedback shows that there are still some rough edges. My spare
>> time is very limited and I'm involved in larger projects that barely
>> leave me any time. It seems that I'm more an obstacle than anything at
>> the moment. I believe it's time to be honest and ask for help instead of
>> making the readers wait for the last 20% of the tutorial and some fixes
>> for all eternity.
>> So if you are interested in helping to improve the tutorial then please
>> contact me and I can provide you with CMS accounts for workaround.org
>> allowing you to edit the pages of the tutorial.
>> If nobody is interested then this will likely be the last version of the
>> tutorial. And seeing my little spare time I will not be able to provide
>> further content. I'm hoping for your support.
