Dear MapServer developers (Jeff in particular),

I think it would be useful to have more Mapserver Documentation
components in trac.  That way it would be easier to organise
tickets.  I raise the issue now that the MapServer project has
been extended with TinyOWS and MapCache, adding to the

I have been trying to help improve the MapServer documentation,
and I have found that it would be convenient for me to be able
to classify the documentation tickets a bit.
I have, for instance often only partly fixed MapServer tickets
by updating the documentation for "core" MapServer, leaving the
MapScript part to others.  In such cases, it would be nice to
be able to "clean the desk" by moving the ticket somewhere
Trac components seem to be the most convenient way to handle

I would suggest that TinyOWS and MapCache get their own
documentation components.  I would also like to have a
new component for MapScript, and for the translations.
These are my suggestions for the new group of Mapserver
documentation components (I think it is a good idea to let
them all start with "Documentation", as that will make
them easy to find when filing tickets):

Documentation - MapServer
Documentation - MapCache
Documentation - MapScript
Documentation - TinyOWS
Documentation - de
Documentation - fr
Documentation - cn

What do you say, Jeff?
