You see, even if we are starting this work, a lot of packages have been
done, and i tried to follow what i saw.

I highly recommend, that you and Marco talk about this issue.
You helping us with the script issue, and Marco for the experience that
he already got doing KFV. Together you could get some sweet conclusions
about how to handle the next adopted sections.

And i would like to settle the whole KVF "working mode" (way to proceed
in each possible case) in Documenting Your Work Kernel.

So all the involved will know how to do it, and add some international
help, by translating it to another languages and teach all the user (who
wants to help) how to help in this huge effort.

I don't know any script language and i'm following the KFV work already

What do you think? Maybe we could talk about this issue in the IRC
channel, for doing it more fluid. Or if not possible by the mailing
