It's ok -- we can do subsequent updates for the web site as well as
for the 2.2 r1 point release.

I spend some hours late last night fixing that so it works. 

I'm taking care of donig the builds for AJ and for the web site.  So
don't worry too much about that but of course it's better if you run
that just to make sure all the SGML is valid.

In short, please just focus on making the content changes; can I leave
that to you so I can focus on closing installation manual bugs?
