Subject Re: Website and svnpubsub

The new svn layout for the site is done. I think I got it working correctly. You're welcomed
to test it and check that I didn't missed anything.

For Ivy and IvyDE site build, it works like the old one, but each has now its own folder and

For Ant's site, there's no more need of having somewhere an anakia installed, it is provided
within the site. So to generate the site, running just "ant docs" is sufficient. And about
the inclusion of the manual into the website, I have created an svn:externals from /ant/site/ant/staging/manual
to So we'll get the last
released manual online.

So now I'll ask the infra about setting up a publication of theses staging branches to an via svnpubsub.

Then we'll review the site online. And once we are happy with the result, we would then proceed
with creating the production branches from the staging ones and open another ticket for the
infra to get thoses branches published to
