Just Launched: You can now import projects and releases from Google Code onto SourceForge
We are excited to release new functionality to enable a 1-click import from Google Code onto the Allura platform on SourceForge. You can import tickets, wikis, source, releases, and more with a few simple steps. Read More
The release went ok (at least I think...) given the cvs -> svn
change. Thanks Alan for your work updating the release scripts.
However, I ran onto the following problems:
(1) I could not build the documentation, i.e.:
Gave me the message:
make: *** No rule to make target `www-install'. Stop.
(2) I don't have the necessary permissions to change the platform-
specific download pages.
(3) I couldn't update the examples since I no longer seem to have the
necessary files for the png driver.
Hopefully I will be able to resolve 1 and 3 soon.

Hi Hazen (off list):
Thanks again for your release efforts which are really helping to promote
PLplot, give us useful feedback from users, etc.
More comment below in context.

Did you specifically build the documentation first? If it is built, the
www-install target should exist and the above command should work. If you
haven't built the documentation, then you will get the above symptoms.

I am sorry, I cannot figure out what (if any) additional permissions are
required for you. I just checked, and you have everything that could
possibly be relevant. Did it actually respond that you did not have proper
permissions, and if so what was the exact message?
If instead, you got no response at all, I am pretty sure it is a browser
version problem. Try a late version of firefox (which is the only one
that worked for me).
For now, I have cut down considerably on the number of different release
pages. Now there is only the "default" one (which I have edited
appropriately) and the usual "Browse all files" one.
