I'm late getting into the documentation discussion,

so someone may have said this and I just haven't read it yet. 

(a) with regard to number of doc sets: I'd like to see Symbolics send out
doc sets in roughly the ratios they mention, but then give each machine at
a site a "Credit" good for up to ninety days to be cashed in for a doc.
set. The two sites I've been acquainted with never needed all the doc sets
we got and the proportion that Symbolics suggests would be just about right.
However, I don't think it's in Symbolics interest to penalize places where
this is not the case.

(b) I've never heard so much griping against the doc. examiner. Let's hear
more - should this be a session at SLUG90? I've found that the doc. examiner
is much better cross-referenced than any printed material could be, and I've
found it much faster to use than the doc. set. Yea, it seems slow, but by
the time you juggle the index, the volume you want, etc., the slow 30 - 40 
second response time on the system is nothing to complain about. I used to
race people who told me the doc set was better. I never lost.
