I looked over the logs and all but about 1-2 changes since last build
are docs related. So I'm going to hold off starting the build for about
16 hours to allow more time for the doc stuff to come in and work out
some of the kinks in the css, and navigation.

Testers, as far as you're concerned the last build is basically going to
be the same, so test away and fill out results on

Please email or file a ticket if you find a major bugs.

Note: now that the symlink in the home directory goes straight to the
shared data, there is no obvious way for a user to find example projects
when they do a file open in a given application. ie:QGIS, GVSig etc.
Should we add another symlink? Maybe call it Examples, ProjectFiles ?
