Subject RE: [WWW] Changeover is Close - Final Tasks!
Date Thu, 22 Dec 2011 20:21:19 GMT
Apparently so.  I just saw Dave's affirmation of that.

I've never used in accessing the site and in any shortcuts/bookmarks. Had
I not been paying attention to ooo-dev, I would be one of those who will not notice that there
is a cut-over [;<).

So I guess there needs to be something on that lets folks know what can
still be found on and http://* for *!= www.  

Something on the page about is probably useful too.
 But deep linkers will find whatever they find.

The only thing within my power in this context might be to wip up a blog post as soon as cut-over
happens.  Then it becomes possible to illustrate what different links will do until there
is more cut-over down the road.

is about.  We're doing "",
aren't we?

 There is no reminder or announcement about that.
