Right, I'll fix this.

I mentioned a reason for this in my email to the list on the new format. At this point, I'm more concerned with having a visual reference to the extensive history of commits to metadoc.xml. Also, as you said, any changes to metadoc run the risk of doing lots more damage than a change made to a regular guide.

I've done a little bit of stuff in our XSL over the years, but only small changes. Nothing major. We definitely need someone who's completely comfortable working with all aspects of our XSLT. Alec (antarus) has been playing about with a copy of our repo for some design work; he might be able to contribute a patch or two as issues come up, if we ask really nicely.
