Well, really what I want to know is, what scripts are used when we
release GTK+, what processes people go through when updating the module.

The ChangeLog just states why we changed something, it doesn't state the
procedure for someone else to come along and do the jobs that need doing
when we update this module.

For example, the gtk-doc.sgml file is used to create the documentation
with one of the scripts here in the gtk-web module, but the SGML file is
kept in the gtk+ module. What is the process for creating the
documentation here? Is it done automatically by some cron job?

When releasing, do we run the script?
When do we run the script? Do we even use it any more?
Who uses the script? I am aware Tim uses a copy of it, is
that the only use of it?

Some of these questions may seem simple and obvious, but it would be
good if they were clarified so people know how this module works without
polling this list.
