Given the interest that Aj and other ftpmasters have shown
regarding documentation issues I have to agree with you there. In any case
I do not see how a package that only contains text/html files can break
(well, yes, maybe the installation).
However, we should remember that, in any case, user's are our
primary concern here, and we have neglected non-english speaker users for
two releases now.
It's only documentation! I remember the developer's reference
giving high priority do documentation upload during the freeze. I have
browsed (a lot) and finally checked the CVS sources, it seems this has
been commented out from 1.77 to 1.78. However check this out
(which *should* apply to experimental even if it's commented out):
The watchword for uploading to frozen is no new
code. This is a difficult thing to quantify, so here are
- documentation bug fixes are allowed, since good documentation is
Now, two questions:
1.- does this still apply? (i.e. should this paragraph be commented
out and changed from 'frozen' to 'testing')
Adam, are you reading this?
2.- (if it applies) Why are we so shy of doing this properly for the 3.0r0
