For those who don't know, I'm the Release Notes maintainer for potato. I
haven't seen
http://panic.et.tudelft.nl/~costar/potato/upgrade-i386/UPGRADING.html until
after seeing this mail, actually I didn't even hear about such a document.
What a lack of coordination! I appologize if this is my fault. Maybe I
should be subscribed to -boot... but that would be a big bunch of e-mail to
sift through searching for release-notes related material...

Anyway, we should merge the useful stuff from the other doc to the official
Release Notes. Anne, I see there's a HTML and a plain text version - are
they perhaps generated from a single SGML source? The release notes are in
/boot-floppies/documentation/release-notes.sgml in the debian-boot CVS tree,
that's DebianDoc SGML. Will you please look at it? If you have
straightforward patches, commit them or send them over; but do tell me if
there are major structural changes needed to add stuff from your document.

...and until than someone else (e.g. me) can commit your patches into CVS,
if there's a need for hurry.
