Hello all-

I would like to know what the differences are between the job roles of an
editor and a manager. Some of the more obvious differences (an editor
edits, a manager hires/fires) I understand, but I would like to know about
some of the more indistinct areas: who mentors writers? is it critical
that the manager knows a lot about the documentation process? do people
fulfill both roles simultaneously? what are the pros/cons of that?

I am especially interested in hearing anecdotes and stories, just because
the "real world" interests me more than ideals (but of course I will want
to hear about those, too ...)

Thanks for any help you can provide!
