1. New documents @ TLDP

* Not actually a new document, but Artemio I. Pavlo thinks it is now worthy
of the version number 1.0, and since all one-dot-ooooh's come here, his
is not exception. So here is the possibly nearly bug free

2. New document proposals

* Kurt Swendson wants you to have a look at this
Beowulf Cluster HOWTO
. While we already have a
HOWTO about the same subject, he argues that the current document is
more of a broad background and introduction to clustering, it needs a
practical addition and his document is truly a how-to, with step by step
instructions. Secure access to the cluster is not covered yet.

3. Updated HOWTOs, FAQs and Guides

* Adrian Offerman's MMBase Installation HOWTO v0.2.5 contains minor
corrections and the Creative Commons copyright license has been adjusted.

* The LDAP HOWTO v1.09 by Luiz Ernesto
Pinheiro Malère covers v2.2.x of the OpenLDAP
package and has some general corrections.

* Anthony Lissot provided us with an update of the Partition HOWTO. V3.4.4 resolves the inconsistencies between
the HTML and XML formats and the sections on LILO placement has been
updated along with the swap size discussion.

* Updated code examples in the Custom
Linux Porting Guide
by Shie Erlich. This guide is intended as a worksheet
and general advise to porting Linux to a custom PPC board. It highlights
pitfalls and critical points in the porting process.
