That's a good question. Would it help to create a Wiki page to write quick
comments, suggestions, wishes, etc.? This can then be edited from time to
time to remove old entries.

You can write and ask on this mailinglist. :)

Again, you can always ask on this mailinglist or ask the author(s)
directly. From my experience authors would *love* to get mails that at
least someone has read their text. :)

Right, but you can always write to opensuse-doc. The mails are archived,
nothing is lost. :)

From my perspective, the problems are still the same, be it with Wiki or
with DocBook XML. If you want to write good texts (who don't want this?)
your text will have to go through several steps: Writing, proofreading,
testing, commenting, translating etc. needs time and energy. I don't want
to go into the details of comparing Wiki with DocBook but the tasks are
roughly the same.
