I will investigate this.

For the release notes, all preparations are finished, so there is
nothing left to do by the webmasters.
For the installation manual, there are still the same questions
remaining I brought up some months ago on d-boot (I can search the mail
in the archives, if you want, but it's probably unecessary):

1) AFAIK the install-manual can't be build with the tools available
in woody, only on sarge (and sid, of course). So the most important
question is: Can we arrange for the manual to be build on klecker
or do we need to build it somewhere else and then rsync it to klecker?
(klecker = www-master). Some time after the release the problem will
vanish of course.

2) The current installmanual for woody uses the layout
<arch>/<filename>.<lang>.<ext>, the sarge installmanual uses
<lang>.<arch>/<filename>.<ext>. I think we would prefer the old layout
(which would require some changes in build.sh, AFAICS).
