upgrade to 3.1.1 + language packs
HTML Strict cleanup
create appropriate parameters for its config in acs-templating
DONE: cleanup duplicated procs (bounce)
review the parsing of bouncing messages (case user_id 0)
DONE: rollout support
Documentation improvements as discussed at the Guatemala conference:
Make current openacs.org/test-doc source for static files included in the release and provide ease means to achieve this for the release manager
DONE (CVS HEAD): Provide in XoWiki a prototype page similar to "book" without edit-buttons etc., using the new table of contents
Update openacs.org/test-doc where necessary (incomplete list):
DONE: Fix the page ordering for the higher chapters (the original document had no 3rd. level numbering)
update pages in /test-doc which are more recent in openacs/xowiki
bump version numbers of OpenACS, where appropriate (some places talk about openacs-5-0, others about openacs-5-1, oacs-5-2-3rc1 or 5-3)
some version numbers of the required components are quite a mess. e.g. some parts say that Postgres 7.3 is required, some examples talks about postgres 7.4.7 and 8.2.4 in the same listing.
also the dotlrn version numbers are old dotrln-2.0
Tcl version numbers should be 8.4.19
The install section for XOTcl is missing in II.3.4
remove ChangeLog from documentation
find some other prominent place for the ChangeLog
Fix indenting in examples (e.g. in Rocael's robust web development framework)
overthink Win2000 guidelines. There are the native
compiled packages from Maurizio, including everything from postgres, xotcl ....
It is desired to find a single person responsible for overworking the documentation, however, funding is unclear.

Usability ("my account" page)
Testing and documentation for recording automated tests using the
firefox plugin and the upload feature for it new in automated testing.
Probably needs some polishing and should be talked to with Quest who
are getting into this.
Remove obsolete master template stuff (default and site master template in openacs-4/www, acs-subsite's group-master, and related CSS and images). Probably in the version which follows 5.5 (probably 5.6). Also remove the compat master stuff at the same time.
