All sources for boot-floppies manuals are there.  Feel free to steal
it.  If you improve it, great, please send me patches.

Webmaster, I need a well-known location for these upgrade notes, so I
can reference them from the Install Manual.  Is there such a URL?
What is it?

I think you mean ~hilliard ?  Maybe you could put it in
~hilliard/public_html?  Please announce it to debian-boot and
debian-testing at least when you upload that, ok?

I think it might be easier for all of us if you could package the
stuff -- README_upgrade, Release_Notes, and even 'autoup.sh' (are you
maintaining that or connected with those who are?).  If it's packaged
I think we can all deal with it more easily.  Even if it's just those
two documentation files.  You can use 'ByHand' entries and make sure
they make it into the 'docs/' area. 

As I mentioned above, I also need a stable URL to reference this
material as well.  Packaging would help.
