The most recent version of the Django documentation lives at
http://www.djangoproject.com/documentation/ . These HTML pages are generated
automatically from the text files in source control every 15 minutes. That
means they reflect the "latest and greatest" in Django -- they include the very
latest corrections and additions, and they discuss the latest Django features,

the "latest and greatest" in Django -- they include the very latest

which may only be available to users of the Django development version. (See
"Differences between versions" below.)
A key advantage of the Web-based documentation is the comment section at the
bottom of each document. This is an area for anybody to submit changes,
corrections and suggestions about the given document. The Django developers
frequently monitor the comments there and use them to improve the documentation
for everybody.
We encourage you to help improve the docs by submitting changes, corrections
and suggestions in the `ticket system`_. The Django developers actively monitor
the ticket system and use your feedback to improve the documentation for
everybody.
We encourage you to help improve the docs: it's easy! Note, however, that
comments should explicitly relate to the documentation, rather than asking
broad tech-support questions. If you need help with your particular Django
setup, try the `django-users mailing list`_ instead of posting a comment to the
documentation.

* Once a document is frozen for a Django release, we remove comments from
that page, in favor of having comments on the latest version of that
document. This is for the sake of maintainability and usability, so that
users have one, and only one, place to leave comments on a particular
document. We realize that some people may be stuck on a previous version
of Django, but we believe the usability problems with multiple versions
of a document the outweigh the benefits.
* The `main documentation Web page`_ includes links to documentation for
all previous versions.
