Doc Team Meetings

In order to keep everybody in touch and up to date, we will be holding regular documetation team meetings. We will present an agenda for each meeting, and send minutes of each meeting to the appropriate mailing list.

  • Could you also send minutes of those meetings to the release team? Thanks! -- VincentUntz

Meetings will be split in two parts. The first hour will be for our documentation writers. We will discuss where our documentation is, where we want it to go, and how to get it there. The second hour will be for our documentation hackers. We will discuss the progress on our upcoming changes to the documentation platform.

Hackers Agenda

Attending / Interested: DonS, JoachimNoreiko, ShaunMcCance, GoranRakic, MiloCasagrande (interested), ...

  1. Introduction and welcome new members
  2. Current status of existing platform
  3. Status of ProjectMallard

    • Check out gnome-doc-utils/sandbox/mallard from Gnome SVN

      • Checked it, not sure what to do with it though! Explanations please Shaun!
        • For people interested in the implementation side of things, they can start looking at the XSLT. For people who want a taste of what it will be like to write with Mallard, look at the XML files under the spec directory. Also, if you type make in the html directory, you should get XHTML renderings of the pages under spec. Start by looking at mallard.xhtml and browse around.

  4. Status of the yelp-document branch
  5. Status of Spoon

  6. Status of library.gnome.org
  7. New business
