It's still broken.

I personally haven't forgotten that.

But it seems that people forget that big changes require some advance
notice (and testing), to reduce the amount of settling down that is
required.  As I mentioned in my last message, I would have gladly
explained the potential problem to you, if you'd posted a heads-up
message with a little advance notice.

RELNOTESng depends on part of the doc/ tree.  Note that doc/ is not 
branched, but src/release/doc/ is.  When you moved parts of
the doc/ tree around in -CURRENT, you caused doc/ on -CURRENT to become 
inconsistent with src/ on 4-STABLE.  This broke RELNOTESng on 4-STABLE.

What I am saying is that it appears to me that src/release/doc/ on
RELENG_4 needs to be changed to reflect the new naming scheme.  It is
broken now, and will not build, because of inconsistencies in naming
language codes between src/ in 4-STABLE and doc/ in -CURRENT.

It's broken.  You missed some details.  I've tried to explain it as best
I can in email.

As you can see by the attached output, there is a definite breakage
here.  Please *don't* try to fix it.  Please let *me* figure out a fix
and do some testing, as well as coordination with nik and the
repo-meisters.  Thank you.
