the master copy should be in svn, in a format that i can open && edit.
having it in on someone's personal computer in some company is not my
understanding of community software.

if novell buys a framemaker copy for every contributor who wants to edit
the evolution user docs, i can live with that workaround. ;-)
seriously: it won't solve your problem that any changes have to be
manually "backported" from the svn version to novell's file, and i guess
that could become a lot of work.

i'm also not a doc writer, i only know of emacs users, and that's most
likely not an option here. i've already asked for feedback on the
gnome-doc-list, but srini may of course also blog about it (we're so
web2.0y, aren't we?), explaining the issue and asking doc writers for
feedback...?
