Subject Re: Confluence Wiki Anyone?
Date Thu, 10 Aug 2006 03:20:53 GMT
That's why I mentioned the pdf earlier.  With Confluence, you could  
create a pdf of the current wiki docs at release time which would  
serve as (or contribute to) the documentation for that release.  Each  
pdf would be verified and checked into svn and become part of the  
release as well as tag/branch.

If people have a problem with opening and using a pdf, we could  
basically do the same thing with the static (cwiki generated) html  
files.  Am I confusing anyone?
