I take responsibility for CVSGnome's exclusion from the 2.2 and 2.4 release
notes. This has nothing to do with Jeff, or GNOME's leadership structure. It
was my decision.

In the GNOME 2.0 time frame, Ali for whatever reason made the decision to
leave the user docs package out of CVSGnome. This meant that a substantial
portion of the docs we had worked so hard to produce were unavailable to
CVSGnome users. Ali disagreed, abusively, with my suggestion that this was a
problem[1]. That wasn't a build system I could recommend, nor was it a project
with which I was interested in having any further involvement.
