Hi Seth,

Sorry for the delayed response. I'm really impressed with what you have 
achieved. Well done.

More comments inline.

Nice work. How are you creating these pages?

It seems that image links are broken for releases 6.0 to 10.5. Do you 
know why that is? (I'm suspecting it might be because we changed our 
directory structure around version 10.5 and our build process would have 
been different.)

Have you noticed that we have some of the old doc sites stored in our 
archived, and referenced from:


(You can actually see the entire doc websites from 5.0 to 10.5

I'm super excited by the potential of this. One of our pain points in 
documentation has been that we haven't had a current, nightly build that 
people can see as soon as they update docs.

It would be great if we could set this up. Would you be interested in 
setting up a:

live.osgeo.org/dev/... (or similar) for the latest docs?

Version 1.0 was effectively a test run of OSGeoLive (called the Live DVD 
at the time). Our aim was to have OSGeoLive ready for FOSS4G 2009 in 
Australia, and we had an early version ready for FOSS4G 2008 in South 

While I can't remember for sure, I don't think had developed 
documentation for the 1.0 release.

Here is a blog post / press release from the time:
