Agreed. Especially after the release, as I said earlier. We don't want
2.0 docs to show up on the web site until we release a 2.0. This isn't
for "security" reasons or anyhing, it's just that it makes sense - it
would get rather confusing to have our only public documentation be
for a release six months hence. We can have a that's automatically updated if we want.

When people want to update the docs, they can go to the directory and
type "cvs update" themselves. And they can update it to the 1.2.x
branch after we release 1.2.0.

I've already done this. But the cron job still needs to be removed.

Brian, can you add the following (or similar) to the

<Directory */CVS>
deny from all

<Files /export/pub/apache/manual/*.pl>
deny from all
