These are all valid and important however can these reside in the Software
Engineering manual?

We current have ...

 1. RTEMS Software Engineering
 2. RTEMS Filesystem Design Guide
 3. RTEMS Development Environment Guide
 4. RTEMS BSP and Driver Guide

plus 'RTEMS BSP and Driver Guide' which I am not sure about. All these cover
some aspect of maintaining and developing RTEMS. Should we be considering
consolidation rather than expansion?
