I haven't had the chance to yet. I'm working off campus(which is where my working machines are) so I'm working through a slow VPN, but I will be more than glad to start extracting them Monday when I get to work :).

This sounds doable. So,have you already extracted the man pages? Can you send me a tarball
containing what you have, I would like to help out with this. I can be found on IRC as well using
the nick "quantumsummers", usually in gentoo-hardened, gentoo-userrel all the time. Lets try to get
something moving on this as soon as you have the time. I can move the interns around fairly easily,
so we can be flexible. Look forward to it!

In concerns with portage, they've been wanting me to help get the documents converted from man pages to Doc-book, so if you have any interest with that, I'd be more than glad to coordinate with you on it.
