Right now, the LDP doesn't have all that much respect from much of the Linux
community.  I'm on the mailing lists for quite a few other doc projects, and
occasionally the LDP will come up, and it's almost never mentioned in a good
light.  I'd love to see this change (which is why I'm on the list), but most
people can't put a finger on what it is that they don't like.  
A lot of people see the LDP as just a big group of individual, without any
sense of direction at all.  In many respects, this is correct.  I think that
a style guide, helping to give a more consistent "look and feel" to our
documentation would go a long ways towards giving the LDP a more
professional image.
