RE: Re: Documentation on branch outdated

Simon,

I acknowledge that sorting out the documentation stuff in the different versions is a lot of work.

However: In the enterprise environment there is always a certain lag between the newest version and the version which is actually in use. Many customers I know will require up to 24 months time until they upgrade.
This means that 1.7 based svn tools will be in wide usage a long time after the release of 1.8. And all those users would be happy to have an accurate documentation.

So do you see any chance to provide an updated documentation for 1.7 ?

kind regards

Walter
