Replying to micha:

Micha, Cameron advised to do those changes after the release, as the English documents are sopossed to be frozen to let the translators work.

Cheers

It's a very minor change. I don't think it will disrupt anything.

they only conditionally exist, & we'll have to check in Alex's full-build of yesterday to see if the symlinks made it where they needed to be. That won't be in the mini build of course (where the doc building happens), so I don't know if fixing the links is technically possible.. dead links are not nice, but maybe we just say "if you have the full version of the ISO, try these links. if you have the mini version they won't work". ?

It is too much to mirror online, so a link to http://live.osgeo.org/installers isn't really feasible. (gpl local source hosting requirements kicks in if served al a carte instead of in with the OS distro)

thanks, Hamish
