We intend to focus on this area. Providing a complete set of
documentation.

Knowing there was so much missing, it was hard to review stuff. I made a
few edits here and there a while back.

We are going to update all of the screenshots. I am not horribly concerned
about consistency. We have a wide array of users, so the occasionaly
Linux/OS X screenshot is good. Obviously, the Eclipse 2.x screens should
be gone.

Feature wise, I have added a lot in the last few weeks. I only have a
couple of more things planned so I think it is going to be stabler. I
think every svn command/feature is now implemented somewhere.

Previously, you added a lot of stuff for the Help Contexts. It would be
great if you wanted to update this, such as adding it to all of the new
dialogs that are missing it. Even if you just put the basic stuff in and
let me worry about updating the XML to point to the new pages it would be a
big, big help. Otherwise, I plan to tackle this when the help is complete.
