Hi !

I would like to know whether any of you are involved with
collecting metrics for assessing user documentation quality in your
teams/organizations. If yes,

* What criteria do you use to verify if a document is good, in the
absence of user feedback ?
* What processes do you follow to collect metrics and what are the
benefits and drawbacks ?
* Is it possible to have an absolutely objective and complete
measurement of documentation quality in the absence of user feedback ?
* Any documents/books/sites you have found particularly useful ?

Thanks in advance,
