Speaking as former coordinator for the release notes I think I can safely say that at this point of the release cycle it should definitely be hosted on www.debian.org in the same location as the final version will be hosted. In fact, getting the build infrastructure for that in place and getting first versions available is some months overdue IMO. The fact that there are no published release notes yet means for example that we cannot yet include them on CD images, which means that we still have a significant uncertainty how CD1 is going to look (as adding the release notes will push some packages from CD1 to CD2). Doing any of this on alioth would IMO be a grave mistake. Note that the Installation Guide is already being built (from XML) on www-master, with the difference that that is built from the last uploaded version of the package and the RN have always been built from SVN (or CVS rather). I'd suggest trying to contact Frank Lichtenheld (djpig) directly for this. IIRC Jens Seidel may also have done some work on the build infrastructure for the release notes in the past. Cheers, FJP
