    Well, lets take a poll.  My feeling is that the documents either aren't
    used, or only a small part of them are used, or more up-to-date
    information is available on the web anyway (cut-and-paste a URL).  Since
    nobody is likely to be installing named or sendmail without some outside
    access, I wouldn't expect the number of people actually using them
    to be very high.

    The last time I personally used those documents was once, a few years
    ago, to look some stuff up about named.


I don't see any point in building these papers; if someone is interested in them, they can build it for themselves.

	I have hardly used those documents, because better and updated
	information is available on the Internet.
