I know we're not gauging opinions yet but I think the book should be
consolidated into the official Apache Subversion project. It would be a
boost to both efforts for many reasons. Furthermore having the
documentation presented on the same website is much more sensible and
professional from a user perspective. It would also help in a future
redesign of the website, as the documentation section would be thorough and
quite complete.
