== Reorganize the handbook espc. related to AppCafe{{r}} ==
+
 
This control panel chapter should include an AppCafe{{r}} section. The Series chapter that ''Using AppCafe{{r}}'' is part of, should be distributed into other areas of the handbook. A new series chapter, ''The Commandline Method'' to be placed nearer the back of the handbook, containing another hierarchy of all areas previously described with the cli commands and how-tos.  Each location in the earlier chapters where those sections/chapters had been, will have a link pointing to the location in the new series chapter. (''I would say page if every title in the table of contents resulted in exactly one 8.5x11" page, and so I created a new name to describe it'' :) Another new series chapter, ''Troubleshooting'' which is another hierarchy to draw all other places that have troubleshooting instruction. A start to identifying these is the troubleshooting category, which is simply the category marker where the word is used.

== Revised handbook structure ==

+
Some of this has yet to be finalized, including shuffling of micro topics and sub-micro topics that do not get listed in the table of contents. Micro and sub-micro topics to be added. Key: {{highlight|Highlighted}} title changes, questions, and new topics. <s>Removed</s> or revised topics or titles.
Part of the trouble with all of the above, is the size and proximity to release. Can it all be accomplished before then?

I will try to flesh out this idea a bit better hopefully within the next week, or asap :) depends how bored/focused I am now :D

--Rg 14:26, 20 August 2012 (PDT)
