Yes. That's what I meant.

But generally, I cannot say that I like the way the things are going. The  
UserBase project does not have significant updates on applications pages  
(although it was claimed that users are willing to write docs online),  
there is a trend to sweep docs under the carpet, move them online, cut off  
docs from applications, compile and package without docs, release without  
docs at all. That's not pretty and fair.

Sorry for being too rough. Please forgive me.

Best regards,
