netbsd-docs-ro

I'm wondering if NetBSD can open a new netbsd-docs
mailing list , for romanian speakers , like :
netbsd-docs-ro . Some of my friend, that are helping
me on the spanish project , are romanian , and they
ask me if may I ask for a new list , in romanian ,
what I did :)
It will be cool , and maybe , thanks of that , other
users may join the NetBSD Project and the local
usergroups , helping with whatever is possible. 
Thanks

IMHO, no.

Maybe I am just being confused by the name? Is the in-kernel mechanism 
totally different?

Hello,

In: http://www.netbsd.org/guide/en/chap-dns.html#chap-dns-files-zone-diverge there is an error

You are right. RFC 1912 says that (hi salo :) too.
I've made the changes.

You seem to miss encoding in your XML files - you should be using
header:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="iso-8859-2"?>

the default is iso-8859-1 IIRC. No idea if it would make it work tho.

guide/pl seems to be using iso-8859-2, so I'd check what setting
they use.

> Isn't best to use XML entities to display czech characters?

Nope :)

Using the text entities is not maintainable. It's possible to
use UTF-8 tho - this is well supported by e.g. vim.

  I have been thinking that an interactive documentation reader along with
some additional metainfo in the man pages would allow combining and
limiting the information presented according to somewhat more detailed
context, while keeping the individual manpage as the basic unit of
documentation.  This would allow pulling in basic descriptions of kernel
configuration details from many manpages and also removing text such as
options for other processors.  You could interactively create lists of
various types (such as all network drivers).  For bonus points it could
even include a basic line editor that could assist in creating
configuration files (of all kinds) and able to copy and customize some
types of info from the man pages.  The basic combination and limiting
features would be available from the command line as well, but the
interactive element would allow context to accumulate as you determine it
and to maintain pointers to various pieces of documentation.  This would
also allow better integration of third party documentation that provides
the necessary metainfo (which most wouldn't, but would make it possible).
On the negative side, too much formalism can make it even harder to write
good documentation, so the manipulations would need to be limited to
maintain sanity.

  It seems to me that a major need in documentation that is almost always
