Work has started on a Users Guide using the Docbook format, which can produce
both html and PDF output.  You can see the current preliminary work at
http://www.m0n0.ch/wall/docbook/.  If you would like to contribute to this
project, you should sign up for the m0n0wall-doc mailing list (although
there is very little traffic on it at the moment).  I would be happy to
send you the README file for the User Guide Docbook project so you can see
how to check out your own copy to work on it.  Just send me an email.

I think it would be great if you wanted to contribute to the manual.
There is still a lot of collecting and consolidating input to be done.

The last chapter is a (still small) list of pointers to other documentation.
If nothing else, it would be good to collect pointers there so that people
don't have to wade through the list in order to find documentation.
