Yes even confusing to me when I'm looking for something of a particular

(Well I think the http://postgis.refractions.net/docs  should point at
the latest tagged release.  Even the 1.3 is a moving target.  For
example we have GeoJSON support in 1.3.4 SVN we don't have in regular
1.3 so I think people may be scratching their heads if they see a
function like that and think "What's wrong with my install - why am I
missing this great function?" )

On a side note - what is the current state of the doc build process?  I
haven't seen any of my new additions to the docs on the site, so I was
afraid maybe I did something to break the build.
