i fear i can not help here. I can't remember doing any changes in
grass5/source/snapshot, i did indeed some minor changes to
grassdevel.html, general.html and firsttime.html, which are shown in the
logs. I would have annouced any major updates or changes, but thought
that i should not bother you with a message that i fixed some typos etc.

While we are on this topic, i think it would be very useful if some sort
of automation (include files, date inclusion, etc) could be done with
the web pages (e. g. m4 macros, WML or something similar). This would
allow to update the web pages successively with style sheets, navigation
aids and create a unified layout. Currently the web pages are a bit of a
maze (the navigation, not the contents!).
