As for documentation activity time-line....
I think we should focus on updating/polishing squeeze release note for
about 4 - 6 months from the release date. So I expect to see only one
main trunk only. (This is usually the first real update time-line
although we had a quick fix release earlier for squeeze.)
Then we should continue on updating/polishing so from 6th month until
18th month. But, in this period, we should discuss and put some effort
