Thank you for the additional information. This could pose problems
depending on the sense of the community. The community made a conscious
choice not to use the Version 3 documentation as a basis as they felt at
the time that we needed to have the Documentation under the ALV2.

I felt at the time and still do that the need for good documentation
outweighed the arguments for basing them on the ALV2, but the discussion
should be broached again to understand what the current sense of the
community would be.
