Assistance needed (please translate to work items for the beta iteration):

Probably with some of the clustering updates, or information on additional guides - roaksoax / ivoks
vmbuilder updates - soren
ufw updates - jdstrand
Maybe some input on the Tomcat secion - ttx
A heads up about new install tasks would be good - ttx
Should the OpenNebula section be dropped? - mostly unchanged since jaunty
May need help with proposed new Puppet section - mathiaz

ttx review / 20100526:
 * In order to assess how much this will impact the team, having a set of targets and outline where you'd need our help would be great
 * Could you turn the implementation details into a set of work items, following ? That would allow to assign specific subtasks to precise doc contributors as needed

mathiaz review / 20100526:
 * I'd suggest to list the section of the guide that need to be updated in this release cycle with a rough outline of what needs to be done.
 * I'd suggest to list new sections to be added to the server guide
 * I'd suggest to list sections to be deleted / merged.

 * Create headers for new sections even if they aren't written yet.
  * May help with new contributers.

 * Remove ubuntu-serverguide package.

 * List of top subjects that need to be documented.

 * Create more interest/buzz for contributing.
  * Make the process more appealing to developers.

 * Section on contributing to the Guide in the Server Guide.

 * Take a serious look at LaTeX.

 * Post release updates to documentation.

 * Look into server team owning h.u.c/serverguide or something similar.
