Since I just went thru hell because of some glaring problems with the
documentation (specifically the cvsnt chm file) perhaps I should volunteer
to correct them. What is involved with updating the documentation? I presume
the documents are stored in a CVSNT server somewhere and there is some build
procedure, maybe a makefile, for the chm? I've never used docbook, but I
think I have some tools from my cygwin installation.

OK, if it makes you feel less flattered, I'll say the Kudos were for the 
overall effort, not specifically for the docs. Most of all I was 
comparing the up-to-dateness of the CVSNT docs with that of the GNU CVS 
docs, even though I just had another look to make sure and it doesn't 
seem to be as bad anymore as it was when I last checked...

Still, ... :)
