I have noticed that some earlier notices relating to some ports  in UPDATING 
appear as though they have been made out of data by newer notices (e.g  kde 
20050804 seems to replace 20050324) and sometimes the instructions conflict 
with one another. While I presuime the latest notice always takes precedence 
I wonder if it would be possible to have notices that are no longer current 
removed from UPDATING.

I know I would find it useful to have  an html version of UPDATING with an 
index page by port with a link to the notices.  How easy it would be to do 
this automatically as UPDATING is upfated I do not know but I throw the idea 
out there in case anyone feels like catching it.
