When Jesse gets back home he's going to make some changes to CVS (access 
control list wise). When those changes are made you'll get your CVS account. 
Can you wait a few days with it? If Jesse isn't back home in time I will set 
it up for you, but to save us some time later I'd like to hold of if that's 
ok with you.

Don't worry about the DocBook stuff, there's where I come in. I have written 
an entire book in DocBook so we figured I'd be easiest if I do the 
conversion. I have the tools installed on my box to do the job and all that. 
I won't take me more than a few minutes to make the conversion and render 
into html, ps, pdf, whatever format you can think of.

I will get to the DocBook conversion coming Friday. That gives me some time 
to read over your work and make changes if needed.
