We aren't ready for this yet, because we are still configuring the
server, but the idea would be to get a team of perhaps 8 or 10 people
together, including those who know the subject matter, plus editors,
graphic artists, a sysadmin, and perhaps others, to put the material
into a publishable state. When we have a clear idea of where we are
starting from and what the goal is, it takes less than a week to write
a book using the FLOSS Manuals Book Sprint methodology.

This is what I call Defensive Documentation. I have often had to do it
myself, when the developers of some software have not wanted to write
or test the documentation themselves.
