Hi Geir,

IMHO these files would "fit in" better if they were placed into, say, 
site/docs/documentation/classlib/<regex|security> directories
alongside the other documentation that is linked from the same page [1]. 
I think that adding module subdirs into classlib/trunk/docs
containing static (not generated) docs alongside directories containing 
Doxygen configuration and generated docs might cause
confusion. Is there a reason not to have these stored directly under site?

Could the docs that are currently at classlib/trunk/doc/kernel_doc and 
classlib/trunk/doc/vm_doc also be moved to, say,
site/docs/documentation/classlib/<kernel|natives>?
Perhaps then a link to the kernel docs could be added to [1]. The docs 
under kernel_doc are currently out of date, since
String has been removed from kernel and some com.ibm packages have been 
renamed. The patch I have attached to
HARMONY-332 will allow a set of new up-to-date docs to be generated for 
kernel and native code, which could then
be used for the website.
There are currently two links (under "Architecture and guides") to files 
in vm_doc at [2] which would need to be updated to point to the new 
locations.

Regards,
Oliver
