Clam AV indicates that it detected a few exploits in The LDP archives in case you are mirroring them. Specifically, files from the LDP/LGNET and the LDP/LG directories. These are false positives and not a cause for worry.
Martin Wheeler setup a LDP online database of author skillset profiles. The DB however, is not restricted to authors and one can go and enlist themselves if they would like to volunteer for technical reviews, Docbook conversion, admin tasks, proofing/editing, language reviews, language translations etc. There is a sample entry and also a list of HOWTO categories for reference to volunteers for the above. This follows on close heels of the discussion on The LDP discuss list on subject specialists and subject volunteers.
The Arts and Humanities Data Service of UK published a review of XML editors based on technical report titled Benchmarking XML-editors by Thijs van den Broe. The report looks at 23 different editors and benchmarks them against various features (eg, Multilingual text input and display, Support for different schema languages). It also presents the results of an evaluation exercise where different user groups tried a number of the editors.

Machtelt Garrels (Tille) signed up as the LDAP matter expert and after the spirit of David Lawyer's idea to take responsibility for the subject for which you are an expert, she will have a go at the current documents that deal with LDAP: primarily the LDAP HOWTO and LDAP Implementation HOWTO, but also these HOWTOs which have LDAP as a sub-subject: Apache Webdav LDAP HOWTO and Apache Compile HOWTO. Some of these are quite old, I'll contact the authors and check if they are still maintaining their document. As this is a "pilot project", Tille will keep us posted.
