My senior writer has been tasked with building and maintaining a
SharePoint server to help distribute technical information within our
development group (and eventually company-wide). He's eager to take this
on, but I'm concerned about the time he'll need to maintain the server.
Does anyone have a rough estimate of how much time the
administration/maintenance of a SharePoint server is likely to consume?

In other words, am I gaining a DBA but losing a writer? ;-)
