Subject Re: How to rebuild the docs for Artemis?
Date Mon, 14 Nov 2016 16:22:03 GMT
The docs on the webiste are not necessarily part of the release.. they
just document how to use a current release. Some options are not
available in 1.4, only on 1.5... etc...

Now, we can't change the release for sure since it's signed and voted.

I think it's ok to make a small change to the 1.5.0 release and push
it directly to the webiste...  I prefer doing it as part of the
release.. but we can treat small exceptions occasionally.

What about this: If we start making too many changes to the docs (like
if someone is reviewing docs.. etc.. we can then upload a snapshot of
the docs to the website). Right now it's not really needed.. but if we
need it we can change the workflow at any point (when needed). WDYT?
