Subject RE: [DISCUSS][WIKI] Do we need a top-level Releases page?
Date Fri, 15 Feb 2013 18:52:26 GMT
Joe,

I think the pages for the releases in progress which updates users and developers about the
status, bugs, and features of a release in progress should still be relatively high in the
tree so people can easily access it.  That's information that people don't have access to
from the landing page.  It doesn't have to be top level though.  You decide.  As for the current
release, we can probably remove it.

Very disappointed that we can't use the html exports.  Don't really understand why from reading
that page David sent out.
