There is no reason why this shouldn't happen. Your manual should be reviewed by as many different people as possible. Maybe not the whole R&D and QA staff (a gross over-allocation of staff) but by representatives of their groups and by a user representative as well.

Has the manual been reviewed already and if so by whom? If you are ready to publish, one assumes that you have already been through a review process.

By the way, is it quite good that you finished the manual or is your manual quite good? :-)

Where are the users in the process ? Shouldn't *they*, rather than "the
entire R&D and QA staff", review the product ?
