Thanks. BTW technically you have write access to all repo, because so
far it did not make sense to limit access to a given repo.

Given that you are native, your such corrections are highly appreciated.

Actually we already have such a split-up, see index-user.txt and
index-devel.txt. The chapters are individual txt files and they are
included in the user, devel or both category.
Of course the parts can be improved and new chapters can be added. I
guess what you could improve is more the user than the devel part. :)
I think a good example is that personally I did not really had to help
Gholafox or Elentir regarding development questions - but that may be
because they got help on #frugalware.fr, I don't know. ;)
