    I will set up a Linux MM documentation section in the Linux
    MM site. Then I'll also put a pointer file ("More.Info" or
    something like that) in the Documentation directory.

    Then every kernel subsystem is free to setup a web page/site
    to document problems, internal structure, hacking info, todo
    lists and tips&tricks themselves.

    Including all possible info with the kernel would be far too
    much and restricting the available info would be a bad thing.

    Once each subsystem has it's own site there could even be a
    bit of competition over who's got the best site -- this will
    undoubtedly annihalate the "no support" FUD we've all been
