In April, the documentation team was asked to deliver for
May the documentation for the special versions of the operating
system for Opteron© and Itanium2© processors. These two
versions were based on the previous version (9.0) of the standard
operating system which was then at 9.1. Required languages were
English and French.
A new branch derived from 9.0 is created on CVS to hold
Opteron and Itanium specific changes;
all tasks are assigned to engineers in France and
Ukraine, writers in France and Argentina, a proofreader in
all needed changes are brought to existing modules in
English, using conditional content for one or the other
processor or for both at once;
changes are mirrored in French;
after an ultimate proofreading, all documents are
generated from source and shipped.
