	I would love it if you could host the guide in the mean time and  
automate its regen off fresh svn sources, just like we're currently  
doing with the Index (and since you already host that ;-) Committing  
the regen script to svn would also be great (, in the  
base/portmgr dir just the same. I'm still in talks with kvv about  
hosting the guide right on MacOSForge with a static link to it off the  
front page, but in the mean time having it readily available in final  
form is a good thing, I believe. If we can come up with something now  
we can later on figure out how to also automate update submissions to  
our web server, I'm sure.

	To make it complete you still need the css file, however, so I'll try  
looking that up for you if it's not already in svn. Thanks for all the  
help and human & machine time, Daniel, much appreciated!



PS: I've been thinking about the guide port idea, but I must admit I'm  
not too bought on it... although I still haven't scrapped it entirely,  
I must also admit.
