In $webtopdir/release-notes/lenny :
$ svn checkout svn://svn.debian.org/svn/ddp/manuals/branches/release-notes/lenny
I fear the build will fail because of required backported packages ..
For the crontab where $release = lenny :
(cd $notesdir/$release && svn up) >> $notesdir/build.log 2>&1
make -C $notesdir/$release publish \
PUBLISHTARBALL=yes PUBLISHDIR=$webtopdir/www/releases/$release >> $notesdir/build.log 2>&1
The loop defined in cron/parts/7release-notes doesn't fit since ddp
migrated to SVN since etch, and there is no etch branche in the SVN.
