Hello, gang! In the absence of fox2mike (who did some good behind the scenes
stuff before he was called away by other things), release responsibilities were
handed down to me, so I hope I did a good job? The tracker bug (#143694) is
still open as of this writing, as I asked JoseJX to look in on some PPC
afterthoughts (#144190).

Anyway, all the handbooks are in place in /doc/en/handbook/ and in handbook/2006.1/.

Translators, start your engines! :D (oh yeah, and uncomment index.xml as
translations are added)

Many thanks to neysx for implementing conditionals; they were really a boon for
this release -- made working with the handbooks much easier. Next task is to
maybe see if we can get conditionals working for the MIPS handbook (Redhatter
did a nice job with the new MIPS hb).

Also thanks to rane, who did great work with many arches, and to SwifT, who got
the tarball scripts working (yay!!!) and shipped the doc tarballs. And to
fox2mike, who gave me some good advice on the release process that helped me
through. Thanks to the helpful points of contact in releng and from the arch
teams (agaffney, kugelfang, wolf31o2, and others) who were available to answer
questions. And thanks to anyone else who contributed that I forgot to mention.

I think that if you find any errors in these handbooks, they're mine alone. 8)

See you around, GDP; can't wait until we're all back from devaway to let more
good times roll. :D
