Wow, that file is really wrong :-(

Do we need a specific Documenter's Guide? If not, we should remove it.
Note that the new reST docs do have a "style.rst":

Input on that bug would be great.

I guess what would be most awesome would be for someone to read e.g. the
Windows install docs or the LDAP docs and either say "those are complete
and accurate to the best of my knowledge" or "here is a patch to make
them complete and accurate to the best of my knowledge".

Things short of that, such as specific patches, are good too, but that's
the optimum.

Still, I'm sure this data would be very useful.
