Unfortunately, there aren't any chapters for you to review.  The DSSSL
documentation project has effectively stalled: several offers of
material have not eventuated, and the published glossary doesn't even
include all of the submissions received.

Undoubtedly, I should have done better at harnessing the initial
enthusiasm for the concept, and I, personally, haven't had any time to
work on it since August.

It is doomed for failure as a one-person effort, but that was obvious
from the start.  It can succeed, however, when multiple people
contribute.  I have more spare time now than I did during September,
and I would like to work with people to revive the documentation
project, but I would also like to know if anyone has found useful any
of the material that has already been produced.

The material under http://www.mulberrytech.com/dsssl/dsssldoc
comprises a list of contributors, the outline of the DSSSL Handbook, a
procedure library, and a glossary.  The material hidden under
http://www.mulberrytech.com/dsssl/cookbook and
are examples of what could be done.

Has anybody made use of what is already available?

What, if any, documentation do people want to see in the future?

Since I'm already asking questions: what use do people make of the
archive and its search facility?
