Looking at the checkin list (handy link:


) it seems that the important documentation additions would be:

    - Gerv's update to charting
    - Myk's extension hooks
    - My checkin of Joe Heenan's change that whines about REOPENED
    - [Perhaps] Bradley's configurable data/template dir

I've attached a patch with my bits -- Gerv, I'll let you apply it at
your leisure as you're touching that today (which means I *won't* check
it in and that it will be lost in limbo if you don't :-). 

(OK, Gerv?)

If somebody needs reviews, I may be able to fit some in today, so send
them my way -- I'll cancel the requests if I couldn't.
