Product Doc, Web 2.0-Style

I love this - the new template for official Oracle product documentation includes a comments area:

I want to applaud the Docs team for this change - which certainly does not rise to the level of a wiki in terms of community participation (and really, don't you want official doc to come from a trusted source anyway?) - but that symbolizes nonetheless how great strides have been made in that department. Nice work!

Comments:

The doc manager should be able to see your email even if you hide it on the forums. I mean in your example we see your email, but when I post, I only see laurentschneider (no email), so the doc manager had to google for my name to find my email and ask for details about the comments I let... Thanks

ah they probably won't have worked out my oracle.com account name either then. Definitely an email should be visible to the vetter of comments. cheers Niall Litchfield

If they are going to be updating existing documentation, it would be good to have some RSS about the changes. For example, Dizwell has noted that one of the new system parameters (ENABLE_DDL_LOGGING) isn't documented http://www.dizwell.com/prod/node/938 If it gets added, it would be nice to know.
