Eventually it will become exactly that - an installable XFS
documentation package that ends up in /usr/share/doc/xfs.  Other
parts of it will end up as the source for the wiki pages e.g.  the
FAQ. As I do stuff, it ends up here:

http://oss.sgi.com/cgi-bin/gitweb.cgi?p=xfs/xfs-documentation.git

But right now it's time and resources that limit the conversion and
development of that repository, so don't hold your breathe too long
waiting for it.

Cheers,

Dave.
