I think we should remove all things that are not actually in use. The 
templates were not updated since long time, that's a clear sign of useless.

We will add new files as we get them, from the ones mentioned by you.

As expressed in my previous email, I think we should use the global svn 
revision at generation time (for readme, html) -- this way one can 
control better validity of the document for a certain feature and 
content. The documents are generated from many files (admin, devel, 
etc), having several revision numbers in same document is confusing.
