Does the designation of "downstream work" apply here? I was
intending to contribute back any changes required, to enable anyone
else to build the multiple volume version for printing. I wanted it
to become an easily maintainable way for the project to have an
up-to-date version of our manual available to bookstores, or
directly available through

I also would like to reiterate the fact that the localization
efforts would appreciate not having to re-do their work for each
release. Do we really want to continue considering this addition to
the project as well as their work to be "second-class citizens" wrt
the rest of the distribution?
