I don't understand most of the above other than the suggestion that we
use separate directories for releases which is what we just dropped
because it was a mess.

There should be a "What's new" page that has an entry for this
release in it with the entries for previous releases left in for a
quick glance history of what's been happening. i.e.

what's new in this release (1.2)

What was new in 1.1:


  Paul Richards. Originative Solutions Ltd.  (Netcraft Ltd. contractor)
  Elsevier Science TIS online journal project.
