So do I :-)

Just minor suggestions:

- Gerard's signature at Foreword section has a (somewhat ugly) gray 
background. I suppose this is because the <literallayout> tag was defined on 
the stylesheet to have such background color. The same goes to the "All 
packages" and "Needed patches" sections.

- I see many occurrences of "--" on the acknowledgements section. Can them be 
replaced with a "wide" dash ("em dash" or — in HTML)?

- The page references on "How things are going to be done" have an additional 
space such as "[p.8 ]". The references on the packages index seem okay.

- [not directly related to the PDF output] the "Structure" section describes a 
"Part IV" which doesn't exist.

- Can the cover page and those with the text "Part XX" have a centered 
vertical alignment?

Thanks for all your work on this!
