Jeff,

There is already a svn repository called 'ompi-design' that contains
some starter docs that haven't been touched [LAM/MPI user guide latex
infrastructure]. This repository was created a little over a year
ago, but I think I'm the only one that has used it (for some brief
checkpoint/restart documentation).

We could clean that repository out, and change permissions on it if
folks wanted.

Just a thought,
Josh
