The problem is not whether the alpha or beta is frozen, but of a
translator publishing notes for an alpha or beta and its being stuck
as the only translated version available because nobody followed up
with an update.

Actually, everything changes radically, especially from alpha -->
beta.  Alpha notes are really just placeholders for the new features,
in most cases.

We could do something like that.  I have a repository for docs on
github that Denis and I used while we were working on the Developer's
Guide.  It has not been used since then.  It could do with a cleanup,
once I figure out how to do that.  I'm a Github moron but I did manage
to work it before our repositories went under 2FA.  At the moment I am
stuck with not being able to push anything.  Mark has given me some
tips on what I might try and I'm planning to get into that at the

In the meantime, I'll zip up the sources for the Fb4 alpha notes and
put them in the pre-release area of the website
and send you a link.

Note, Dmitry is currently preparing stuff for the Fb4 Beta 1, so I
expect to be working on that over the next couple of weeks.
