The UserDocDraft will be deleted as soon as it has been approved to
replace the current UserDoc.  UserDocBeta will remain and be
continually worked on as the sub-index pages are built over time.

replacement for UserDoc.  Read above in this thread - UserDocDraft is
a quick fix to the current UserDoc which will be eventually replaced
by UserDocBeta.

Good to hear.. :)  If you want to help with UserDocBeta, the "These

This is addressing some of the points that have been mentioned in
relation to the current wiki.  It is helping to provide the framework
for better organisation of the docs on the Wiki.
