minocycline vs. doxycycline in CAP protocol


I have a few questions about using doxy vs. mino in the CAP protocol. So as I understand it:

* Doxy is officially used in the protocol
* Some people use Mino instead

Is there an other source for a roundup of AAN 2008?

By the way, last year there was a conference at Harvard Medical School and the lectures where online as audio documents.
