I never suggested a vote on the issue; you actually said that this is already
done: "the documentation is packaged as part of the Apache distribution, with
the SSIs statically 'compiled'".

You've also missed the point completely - "solely so some files can be
renamed"?! Renaming some of the files was part of the proposed method, not one
of the aims.

I don't see what you mean about "the effect on the repository", either: it's a
simple change to the HTML files in it.

I accept it involves some extra work in packaging; if the CVS tree were made
available, periodically updated, it would be a simple "wget" command to
"freeze" the documentation for a release.

So put a link to a complete server with the docs on. Or "freeze" the docs from
a server with SSI enabled.
