Hi Andrew,

Much of this information is notes and not in a finished format, so it's 
a problem of how much time we have.

The other issue is contributing to the manual is somewhat cumbersome as 
you have to submit patches - 

The bar there is a bit higher - we have to be pretty confident the 
information that's added is correct, know if it's just for some versions 
of lustre, and so on. As opposed to simply "here are our notes that work 
for us".

I will try to review what we have and if anything looks really incorrect 
or missing in the lustre manual we will attempt to issue a patch.

I think in general the lustre manual is correct, but not always 
sufficient. I think the process does make sure incorrect stuff doesn't 
go in at least, but makes it hard to add information.
