The issue is not only mapping the numeric Daisy ID to
the actual filename. We also need to maintain the old
URL-space at

The docs structure can change when we do 2.2 but
not for 2.1

I think that Bruno created a logfile when importing
the original svn repository, which would provide that
mapping. Does someone know where that is?

So Ross, are you suggesting to programmatically create
that locationmap.xml as a once-off task, e.g. Perl
to read that logfile and create the locationmap.

We also need to create the navigation index
for the left-hand side panel.

It would have a lot easier to do this documentation
movement for the 2.2 release.
