thanks so much for your work on this.  It is definitely improving the
state of the documentation available today.

I was wondering if people have an opinion on whether we should remove
some/all of the administration content from the Lustre Operations Manual,
and make that more of a reference manual that contains details of
commands, architecture, features, etc. as a second-level reference from
the wiki admin guide?

For that matter, should we export the XML Manual into the wiki and
leave it there?  We'd have to make sure that the wiki is being indexed
by Google for easier searching before we could do that.

Cheers, Andreas
