Hello all.  I really need another set of eyes on this.  If somebody else could please attempt verification that would be great.

Hello Stephen, or anyone else affected,

Accepted xubuntu-docs into precise-proposed. The package will build now
and be available at http://launchpad.net/ubuntu/+source/xubuntu-
docs/12.04.0 in a few hours, and then in the -proposed repository.

Please help us by testing this new package.  See
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/Testing/EnableProposed for documentation how to
enable and use -proposed.  Your feedback will aid us getting this update
out to other Ubuntu users.

If this package fixes the bug for you, please add a comment to this bug,
mentioning the version of the package you tested, and change the tag
from verification-needed to verification-done. If it does not fix the
bug for you, please add a comment stating that, and change the tag to
verification-failed.  In either case, details of your testing will help
us make a better decision.

  [SRU] Documentation does not match shipped system version (11.10
  shipped with 12.04)

Status in The Xubuntu website:
  Fix Released
Status in “xubuntu-docs” package in Ubuntu:
  Fix Released
Status in “xubuntu-docs” source package in Precise:
  Fix Committed

Bug description:

   * Inappropriate documentation was shipped from 11.10 with 12.04 as it
  was not updated

   * Preparatory to the 12.04.3 release updated offline documentation
  has been prepared to serve users

   * This follows from our documentation rejuvenation effort in 13.04 to
  bring documentation up to an appropriate level of quality.

  [Test Case]

   * Open documentation, it should claim it is for 11.10 which is not
  the correct version of the operating system

  [Regression Potential]

   * Risks are minimal except that users may have been relying on
  outdated documentation since release.  This would remove that risk
  from users that has existed from the release of 12.04 and ensure that
  from the new point release forward proper documentation is available.

   * Any documentation relied upon by users showing tips or tricks will
  not carry over to the new documentation.  As the old documentation
  related to a prior version of the operating system this is considered
  a minor disruption as documentation should in fact relate to the
  version at-hand.

  [Other Info]

   * Documentation continues to be prepared in DocBook

   * Sponsored upload will be required in this instance as knome does
  not have upload rights though he has commiter rights.  The branch will
  be linked after the bug is posted.

   * There will be a need eventually to broaden the number of commiters
  for Xubuntu documentation.  That will need to be addressed at a later

   * The full fix is in the trunk of the precise branch.  Previously
  there was no precise branch and no documentation for 12.04.  We have
  remedied that in this case.
