Feature Proposal: Remove topic info from viewprint mode

Motivation

The print mode should make a document look as professional as possible. Having the topic info trail at the bottom does not look good.

Description and Documentation

Go over the viewprint*.tmpl templates and remove cruft that should not be in a printed version of the topic. Other than the topic info, we might want to think about whether the attachment table should be shown.

Examples

Impact

Implementation

In its simplest form, the implementation is just:

Discussion

Possibly make this configurable with the preferences setting so that it can be set site-wide and per web? Personally I think it is good to have the info and copyright at bottom. Possibly less prominent, such as using a small font with gray color.

As for process, if you intend to implement this feature you can add a DateOfCommitment and CommittedDeveloper to form to get the 7 day review period clock ticking. Details in TWikiReleaseManagementProcess.
