Also, above documentation location is totally temporary and just for
people who want to try out RC2 git release.
In a day or two, I will push final release of 1.0.3 and documentation
available at rubyforge will be updated with new content.
Also, when 1.0.3 will be released using git-svn I will update the svn
mirrors having backgroundrb code. At least thats the approach until
svn is deprecated fully.
