Below the current and a proposal for the new text. Joeyh: Can you please check. Cheers, FJP =============================== OLD TEXT =============================== Debian Installation Manual Installation instructions for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution. Authors: Bruce Perens, Sven Rudolph, Igor Grobman, James Treacy, Adam Di Carlo Maintainer: Adam Di Carlo, Chris Tillman Status: Active work being done for Debian releases (2.2 and future). Need help with non-x86 installation and non-English language versions; please volunteer, this is very important to Debian. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Availability: Released version <link> Also available at ftp.debian.org:/debian/dists/stable/disks-*/current/install.html Also available in the Debian package install-doc CVS sources working copy: set CVSROOT to :ext:email@example.com:/cvs/debian-boot, and check out the boot-floppies/documentation module. CVS via web <link> =============================== OLD TEXT =============================== ========================== PROPOSED NEW TEXT =========================== Debian Installation Manual Installation instructions for the Debian GNU/Linux distribution. The manual describes the installation process using the Debian Installer, the installation system for Debian that was first released with Sarge (3.1). If you are looking for the manual that describes the previous installation system ("boot-floppies"), please refer to the release pages for Woody (3.0). Authors: the Debian Installer team Maintainer: the Debian Installer team Status: The manual is not yet perfect. Active work is being done for current (3.1) and future Debian releases. Help is welcome, especially with non-x86 installation and translations. Contact firstname.lastname@example.org for more information. Availability: Released version <link> Development version available at http://d-i.alioth.debian.org/manual/ Also available in the Debian package debian-installer-manual SVN sources working copy (anonymous checkout): svn co svn://svn.d-i.alioth.debian.org/svn/d-i/trunk \ debian-installer/installer/doc SVN via web: http://svn.debian.org/wsvn/d-i/trunk/installer/doc/manual/?rev=0&sc=0 ========================== PROPOSED NEW TEXT =========================== Notes for the proposed new text: - I've set Authors and Maintainer to D-I team as that was also done for the manual itself during last Oldenburg meeting. - d-i.alioth.debian.org may have to be changed because of the move to costa. Not sure what will happen with DNS in that move. - Maybe the 'svn co' command can be presented as one line.
