1. Everyone, try to chill down a bit. Aaron is not trying to bring 
back old controversy, but is responding with a bit more heat, after 
Stephen's over-protection of the 'Single Avalon Platform'. There is no 
need to bring in the definition of "Avalon Framework 4.1 Compliance".

2. I think we are on the brink of needing to go straight to Avalon 5 
(note the missing 'framework' word), if not for any other reason than 
"Marketing" and "Distinctions". That will clear up any misconceptions 
of where the line in the sand is drawn.

3. Stephen is basically saying that all the AF docs from the old site 
still exists, but they are at different URLs and in a different 
context than before.

4. Aaron is basically saying, "Can I have the 
http://avalon.apache.org/framework URL back and populate it with the 
AF4.1 documentation + any new documentation that I write and doesn't 
have meaning in Avalon 5 Single Platform?"

So, everyone, this can not be so difficult.
I am humbly suggesting that;
Whatever content existed under the /framework URL is kept without 
redirects, and let Aaron/Leo/whoever feel the urge to make it better.

I am less certain that this section should be advertised on the front 
page, but I would be in favour of going via a 'Legacy' link in 
Central, and that page explains the current situation, with references 
to other so called Avalon containers, AF4.1 framework docs and how the 
Avalon 5 Single Platform fits into all of that.

Have I fueled the Flamefest or got someone to react positively, and 
can reconsider the 'My way or No way' stance.
