Specifically, the current content includes:

The content already does link to versions of the Help manual and the Tutorial and Concept Guide. Are you suggesting those are not the latest versions? Should the content clarify what versions they are?

I do hope that I am helping by suggesting that a clear proposal needs to be made by a complete new version at the sandbox. The version there is deficient in my view in this one small way, at least. --Don
Why do you think that there's nothing useful on http://www.gnucash.org/docs.phtml? I don't like the implication that the "unstable" documentation should be considered the "latest" for many users (any differences generally reflect changes in the development branch of GnuCash), but the rest of the sentence is absolutely correct. It could go further by saying that PDF, ePub, and mobi downloads are also available there.
