Comment:

 The version entity for the docs sounds like a great idea. I'm not sure
 about the "adding an Additional Download link to the documentation". I
 can't figure out what that means.

 Since there is complete text-based docs shipped in the package tarball,
 there really isn't a need for BLFS to provide instructions for
 installing alternate forms of the docs. It would be good however to
 (this may be what Dan was saying to do) create an "Additional
 Downloads" section with something like:

 There is alternate formats of the documentation available for download
 at http://exim.org/docs.html.

 I'm not a big fan of specific download links, or instructions for
 installing downloaded docs, unless there is no documentation shipped
 in the source tarball. In Exim's case, however, full documentation
 in text format is shipped with the sources.

 As far as the original report in this ticket, there is already an open
 ticket for the Exim version update. This one is redundant, but left open
 for the version entity and documentation link.
