Links would be helpful. I had a hard time finding where you were talking about.
Regarding the link to Mambots
actually taking you to Modules
in the Help System -- I *finally* found one bad link:
On the Help Screens: General 1.0x Page
As far as your comments about the missing content -- to me, it appears you all came over to Joomla! with what you had -- and what's there is what you had, Joe! In fact, if you return to your old stomping grounds, you will find that, absent Michelle and company, there has been no forward movement at all there!

My question to you, my friend
, is this: where have you been
... good grief! And, to be honest, there is no reason to panic now! I have seen you helping TONS of community members over the past eight months that I have been here. Apparently
, you have not needed to send them to a missing mambot Admin page!
Quick recap of history from August 2005:
1. Don't forget, the initial plan was v. 1.1 and a quicker turn around. I suspect that is why you have not seen the team going backwards
to fill gaps with what was to be "yesterday's news" any day now. Right?
2. Then, don't forget that it is tough keeping up with a moving target. Things have changed A BUNCH for what we now call v. 1.5 from what was going to be v. 1.1. A big bunch, as you well know!
3. Finally, with the recent "frozen features" announcement, things should start simmering down and be ready for those on documentation team or helping the documentation team to start getting the final look at what v 1.5 will be, and finishing the documentation.
how do you determine what all the plugins (mambots) are? For v. 1.5, are these just the individual files listed in the plugins
At the risk of sounding like Dubya, I say "Stay the course!" Our future is v. 1.5, the devs are doing an awesome job, the last developer blog that Johan made sounded extremely optimistic when he said "Joomla! 1.5 beta is lurking around the corner" . But, things sound really hopefully!
Personally, I would not go back. But, I would certainly give Joe update access and allow him to fill in the gaps for v. 1.1. I think that is an excellent idea! He could copy the excellent documentation that I reference when I have mambot questions from:
What I am very excited about is this -- when v. 1.5 comes out, the documentation is going to be amazing. People are not going to know what to think. The developer documentation is really starting to shine as is the user documentation. It'll be something special.
If I can be of help, please let me know. Brad mentioned on Friday you might be looking for resources. If you need me, I will try to find time to pitch in.
