Well, the link on is not very clear.  It's the
bit that says "View the book's Docbook XML sources" -- the last three
words are a link directly into the repository, and from it one can
deduce that this is the trunk path:

However, I'm sure they'd be in favor of someone fixing that page up to
be more clear about how to track head and contribute :-) !  

Since the book is a totally separate repository, with a separate
committer list, managed by booksters, I've CC'd that list to ask them
about commit access there.  Book folks, if you want me to add Joshua
there too, let me know.  I can't remember whether our policy is that
doc commit access in svn means commit access to the book or not.

Yup, you should definitely have Observer role.
