Stan does make a good point, though. The book is such an excellent
resource and it would really increase its value if people could get at
a stable 2.8.4 version of the book while contributors are updating it
for 3.0. I can see that the mix of 2.8 and 3.0 content in a live,
bleeding-edge version of the book would be very confusing for beginner
Seaside users, who are the main target of the book.

Also, having only a 3.0 version of the book kind of pushes people into
using the 3.0 alpha, which is a bit unfortunate, given that the book
is targeted at beginners while alpha releases are targeted at
experienced developers. The fact that people are asking for a
one-click and we said we wouldn't provide a one-click until beta kind
of points to this.
