Subject Re: Ant 1.5 Beta documentation online
Date Mon, 06 May 2002 16:55:14 GMT
My attitude is this... The purpose of the website is to engage people in 
the project...  The purpose of the documentation in the release build is 
to document that release.  So the website should be bleeding edge...the 
release docs should match the release.
