people have volunteered to work on documentation on this list before but
i've never seen any indication that we've been successful in harnessing
the effort of these people.  it's a rare occurance to see a follow-up on
such a post to this group.

perhaps another mailing list (docs@openbsd.org ?) should be started to
discuss man pages, the faq, and other forms of documentation for openbsd.
it seems that there is enough interest from people on this list to
contribute to the documentation effort (i wouldn't mind contributing,
either) that there should be some forum for coordinating the work.
