Hi matroska Team,

i'd like to change our website directory structure from



www.matroska.org\data\technical\guides\dvd\santa   (where the existing 
Guide should be copied to)



and then, over time, try to add Afonic's X-to-DVD Guide and a general 
DVD conversion landing page, linking to the individual Guides.

Comments please
