No this is not the point. I copy-paste my answer from my previous email.

I have released these first time as PreFinal in January but they are new in Maemo.org wiki.

All documents are already available for download from Maemo Info Center. I used this Maemo development environment downloads page to release PreFinal document versions only because I did not have Info Center yet ready for publishing them.

I will remove those PreFinal versions from tablets-dev site downloads as soon as I have also Hildon UI and UI Widget guides released (full set of Fremantle docs) in Info Center. New LaTex baseline and will be available also from Info Center in May.

I plan to continue delivering documentation toolchain from tablets-dev site or should I deliver also toolchain from Info Center together with actual documents and baseline?
