Hi there,

This was a point that came up at the last FLOSS Manuals meeting.

The proposal was to archive most of the FLOSS Manuals content in the
process of moving to a new Booktype 2.x installation apart from active
or most valued ones , and for me to come up with a suggestion on how to
do that.
I've got a suggestion which is...

  * Pick at top 20 of manuals which we would like to promote and try to
    keep updated.
  * Migrate those and any that have changed significantly since the last
    migration to the current write.flossmanuals.net
  * Update the web links of older manuals to point to the relevant part
    of http://archive.flossmanuals.net/ for example one like

I actually think this could be a really positive thing, we get loads of
hits still, and lots of requests to get involved as volunteers but it's
not always clear where to get them started.
I think this kind of focus could really help.

I'm not sure the best way to pick the top 20 odd manuals however, any
