Agreed.  Now is the time to start planning for 14.04.

Is there an existing document of all the documentation (metadocumentation)? I suggest we need to clarify the following.

  o what documentation already exists, and what it is targeted at
  o what documentation should exists, and what it is targeted at
  o what resources are need to deliver the above for 14.04 LTS

This is ideal fodder for a page on wiki.ubuntu.com.  Once that's been flogged enough, it can be linked to a blueprint
for vUDS.  The vUDS is open for blueprint registration already.  A formal plan can be developed and implemented the
traditional Ubuntu way.

I'm excited about the documentation team stirring back to life in time to make the 14.04 LTS release great.  I'm
willing to do my part where I can.
