Maybe we could pick a good collaborative tool and spread the work bettween many
people...

i think the current way (code -> XML -> docs?) is not so flexible for this approach...

A community edition for the docs would allow OTP people to keep maintaining the old 
style docs and relaying on them while, a more open and fresh edition would grow up over 
the time with collaborations from great erlang people and many comments, and addenda from
the plain users base.

Ive seen many people blogging about diferent aspects of erlang and some of them writing good
introductory materials for the language. Its just matter of organize the workforce in a more productive way..
