I think I see some ways we can handle test1 for the future.  However, we
are now needing to focus on real content for test2, so let's not spin
too much time on this.

1. Update /usr/share/doc/HTML/index.html and point at Docs/Beats
2. Do the same for the release notes file itself, maybe just have it be
a copy of the index.html (or a symlink?)
3. Do whatever we can to make Docs/Beats/ i) cleaned out from previous
full release, ii) with a splash page that says it is mainly empty but in
the works, that iii) invites participation.

An alternate on this theme are to put what John did[1]
as /usr/share/doc/HTML/RELEASE-NOTES*.  I like keeping the splash page
(index.html) with useful content, as-is.

From here, let's focus on energizing the developers to put raw content
in Docs/Beats/

BTW ... I had a developer complain that "beats don't make sense to me so
I ignore it because it is too jargony", or something to that effect.  Do
we need to change the namespace/convention?  As long as it makes sense
to describe a modular document.  Thoughts?
