Done. I'll amend xml-guide.xml next week though. x86 & amd64 arch specific files have been merged. hb-install-config.xml is now clean of foreign arches for all arches. Other common files still need to be "cleaned up". Feel free to file patches on bugs if you feel like trying it :) What this feature is meant for: 1) define values that need to be changed at every release. Use values only, don't even put units in there. 2) allow tests, usually on arch, to avoid foreign arches from common files. 3) possibly merge arch-specific files that are very similar, like x86 & amd64 which share the same tools, terminology, partition schemes... 4) possibly merge current & xxxx.y files as long as they are very similar *and* stay similar at least until the next release. FYI, xxxx.y docs are supposed to keep working as long as xxxx.y is the latest version, current handbooks keep moving along. What it is *not* meant for: Merge everything back into huge files full of conditionals. Feedback, questions? Use this ML or #gentoo-doc Cheers, -- / Xavier Neys \_ Gentoo Documentation Project / /\ http://www.gentoo.org/doc/en/
