Reviving for 1.6.
msg9191 (view) Author: wim Date: 2007-02-19.16:42:27
New Docs are put in the branch and trunk and tested
msg9116 (view) Author: kitblake Date: 2007-02-08.19:16:31
A few more minor fixes in the docs are done. This issue is on testing. When
prepping the release, I'd like to test what we get when the docs are installed
in a new Silva root, and check the paths of the nav and Indexer links.

The problems in the docs have been fixed. I've added the maintenance doc. So
this solves the 'sub-issue' of the documentation. 

We still need to be sure we communicate (and maybe re-communicate the earlier
upgrade instructions) in The Release Communiqué to silva-dev.

Setting to testing.

Adding in 1.5, since there's now a change in the layout templates.

Removing Silva 1.5 topic.

Users upgrading need to be informed about the changes in frontend.css too.
They''ll have to "install default layout" in order to get the new table cell
alignment selectors.

The release communication should explain this and the point below about
msg7890 (view) Author: kitblake Date: 2005-11-05.08:19:01
With major releases, we always write a mail with “developer changes” which gets
sent to silva-dev. For this release we need to mail silva-general also. Subject
is perhaps: “Silva 1.4 release information for Managers”. In that mail we should
describe the below point in exacting detail. 

It's a nice feature, and it would be a shame if Silva users didn't have it
because we didn't communicate well enough.

Just found this in HISTORY.txt:
      - Public preview mode now has a back button to go back to the
        Silva UI. Note that in order for this to work, you have to
        update layout templates, or at least, preview_html in the
        Silva root (change 'preview' in it to 'public_preview').

This important item shouldn't be only buried in HISTORY.txt, but needs to be
loudly and clearly communicated to users in The Release Communiqué. I changed
the text, since updating the layout templates won't change the existing
