The Fugue Release document that''s sitting on the coffee table outside Larry''s office contains interesting information, some of which does not seem to be available from other sources (e.g., the GATEWAY Lisp libary package).  I would like to get a copy of this document (actually, I can probably wait until the next release).  If possible, *all* Interlisp-D users should receive copies of all such release documents.'

A good question. '
Til now, Xerox people have gotten all Interlisp technical documentation either from release messages or files stored on Phylum.  Customer documentation, which is usually a subset of that information, is not routinely distributed to Xerox users.'
I advocate setting up a procedure for getting customer documentation into the hands of internal users.  They should be able to get it for free bygrabbing the right press files; or at some nominal cost if they want bound editions (forthcoming with the next release.)'

Disposition: [17jul84, LMM': changed status back to "Open"': I think until there has been a message to LispUsers↑ describing how to order internal documentation, that this AR has not been "Fixed".]
