Understood, and yes, the files will stay permanently in the download area, being replaced by the newer versions. So http://dl.gna.org/savane-doc/savane-user-guide.pdf and http://dl.gna.org/savane-doc/savane-install-guide.pdf should always retrieve the latest versions.

Naming policy issue is also solved

No, it's a very good policy. It's just that in packaging scripts, I'd like to add wget calls to fetch automatically the latest version. And I need to be sure the links will still works, that they are more or less permanent.

I don't understand what you mean by permanent link?

In the project's download area, only the latest versions of the docs can be found.

I initially thought of keeping all versions in the download area, (naming them after version numbers) but then decided it was not really worth while. Each time I make changes to the docs in the CVS, I generate the pdf and html versions and upload them to the download area, overwriting the previous ones.

I thought it was best to keep everything simple, making sure the available docs were always the latest versions, but maybe it's not such a good policy?

Could we have the install guide pdf named like the user guide (with - instead of _)?

And could we have permanent links, which means that we would be 100% sure that a given link for both pdf guides would work?

We would like to ship these with savane, wgetting the latest version each time we repackage savane.
