Well, David and I brainstorm a lot about it, offline.  Mostly we write
appeals for help and in the past two years they have been very
effective.  This year has been different, which may just be random or
might have to do with the job at hand.  It would be good to get input
from others working on the docs this year.  Thoughts, anyone?
