Because as a new user, it's too much to ask me to look in 10, 15 (or in
the case of Oracle) 3*10^6 manuals.  Sure, user manuals become out of
date.  So instead of making later people fork it, setup a "Hurd Users
Manual" project on Savannah and give a number of people checkin and
admin rights to it.  That way when the current maintainer gets tired of
it, a new person, irritated at how out of date the manual has become can
pick it up instead of forking or writing a new one.  New users will
still know that has a hurd users manual.
