In this page we will collect ideas, links, and whatever, for writing Empathy's documentation.
People involved are:
For the 2.28 release, Empathy will ship with Mallard written documentation!!!
For the brainstorming ideas, and the real work, see this page: Empathy Documentation Topics Brainstorming
The git repository with the work is at gitorious: empathy-mallard
When you clone the repository, you have also to checkout the empathy-mallard branch, there's no master in it!
For the 3.2.1 release, Empathy lets you connect to IRC!!!
On (irc.gnome.org) gnome people should be able to help faster: http://lleksah.wordpress.com/2011/12/14/connecting-to-irc-with-empathy
Empathy vs. Pidgin
There's a section about the help with errors and some thoughts.
Empathy FAQ that we can take a look at.
Empathy is based on the Telepathy framework, using the telepathy-glib binding to interact with the other components in the framework. Thus, the Telepathy Developer's Manual may be useful, as may the telepathy-glib documentation and the Telepathy D-Bus API specification. Note that Telepathy is designed to allow separate applications to share the same IM accounts and connections, so extra user interfaces need not necessarily be part of Empathy.
