Am i right?
I noticed the same thing some time ago. This isn't a big problem though, as you can easily generate the same diffs from 2006.0 to 2006.1 by something like: $ for f in 2006.0/*xml; do diff -Naur $f ${f/2006.0/2006.1}; done in cvs/.../doc/en/handbook/ I found that the easiest way to view actual changes since I hadn't tracked the changes in draft at all. -- Flammie, Gentoo Linux Documentation’s Finnish head translator and FlameEyes’ bot <>.
