The problem with this idea is that setting up a new project will require
the cooperation of the system administrator. Is there some more
"lightweight" method to achieve this? I haven't seen how the Linux developer
list works, but it seems it is something like "linux#scsidriver@...." where
"scsidriver" would be one of the list's channels.

Lot's of stuff, but all of it in HTML...

try <a href="">
Help on HTML</a> for a start.

One problem with the other formats I used before was how I was going to
read my docs within my own system after it was running. A HTML reader
can be written faster than a LaTeX or Postscript one.
