Kevin -

Speaking for myself, I'm going to have to wait until I see/read
your proposal.

We have the HOWTOs categorized/sorted in a multitude of different ways:

- By Category (linux os, sys admin, h/w, networking, etc.):

- By (Modify) Date:
       (recent updates) http://www.linuxdoc.org/sorted_howtos.html
       (full list) http://www.linuxdoc.org/sorted_howtos_full.html

- Alphabetically:
       (by title) http://www.linuxdoc.org/sorted_howtos_title.html
       (by filename) http://www.linuxdoc.org/sorted_howtos_quick.html

- By Type (HOWTO/mini-HOWTO)

- Master Indexed List w/descriptions, date:

Most of these lists are derived from attributes stored in the
SGML source files.

I need to see more specifics on what you're proposing. Hence,
I'll wait for the paper (I'm hoping it contains a fair amount
of detail ;-)).
