You're welcome :-)

Yes, I think so. I have these things left on my todo list:

A. Rewrite site for core module, which is now in JIRA as RAT-123
B. Add xml schema to assembly descriptors and site descriptors, so that
they can be validated
C. Rewrite src/site/apt/site-publish.apt, given that we're not in the
incubator any more

- Robert has assigned A to himself.
- I'll take care of B tonight.
- We can probably do C as an exercise during the release, to bring it in
touch with reality
