I agree with the concern (in fact I raised it myself yesterday) ... but 
it seems that the time is right to start the 2.2 doc.  We have people 
willing to jump in and help out with a new structure (like Rebekah and 
Jack) that were currently stuck and people were also interested in 
documenting 2.2 functions.  It was agreed that seeding the 2.2 doc from 
the 2.1 space was the right approach.  Unfortunately, the export/restore 
is an "all or nothing" proposition.  You either copy the entire space or 
manually copy each individual page.  I have no idea if the checkmarks 
are accurate ... but I suspect they are not.

As far as maintaining the 2 docs, I think we all should take the 
following approach:
- Treat the 2.2 documentation as the "primary" documentation.  In other 
words, update this first if there are changes to be made.
- Mirror updates from the 2.2 doc back to the 2.1 doc.

That way, if there is any discrepancy we will know that the 2.2 doc is 
"more correct" and the things just might not have been mirrored back to 
2.1 (or perhaps changed in 2.2).
