Yay, that is very cool indeed, as we could work on the 6.2 documentation
already during development and (ideally) have it ready at release time!

We will probably work on some documentation for the "migration" from 4.5
to 6.2, as this is one of the major goals. What would be the suggested
place to include this information? A natural candidate could be
http://docs.typo3.org/typo3cms/InstallationGuide/, but this is not
"up-to-date" yet, right?
