This is boilerplate text we update with each release.  If we remove it
now we may forget to put it back for the next release.

On the left hand side under "Documentation" there is a link to "Wiki"
pointing to <http://wiki.apache.org/ant/FrontPage>.  Anything wrong with
that?

The docs may not always be clear - which is to be expected if they are
written by the people who know the code.  Any help is very much
appreciated.

I don't think your manifestclasspath conclusion is true, though.  The
task works pretty well regardless of the folder you start Ant from, at
least it is supposed to.

My guess is you've simply overlooked there already is a Wiki.

If you find real bugs in the manual then we should fix the manual rather
than add a Wiki page, though.
