Documentation Project Documents

The DocumentationProject. It looks after a heap of different documents: user manuals, general guides, developer documentation. But have you ever wondered just how many? Let's find out...

If an application's user manual isn't listed here, and you think it should be, then contact the GDP mailing list. If you'd like the GDP to maintain your app's user manual, see also the DocumentationProjectPolicies.

General Guides

These are in awkward places in our repository: see DocumentationProject/CvsModules

  • GNOME user guide -- A big monster of a document. This covers general GNOME usage, and also:
    • Nautilus
    • the panels and main menu
    • SOME panel apps (have fun working out which)
    • preference tools (what hackers call capplets)
    • alacarte menu editor, which is displayed as a preference tool but lives elsewhere in bugzilla and cvs
  • GNOME accessibility guide
  • GNOME system administrator's guide

Application manuals

By and large, these should be in a module's help/ directory.

  • DeskbarApplet

  • EOG -- Eye of gnome image viewer
  • file-roller -- the gnome archive manager
  • gcalctool -- the gnome calculator
  • gconf-editor -- the Configuration Editor
  • gdm -- more of a sysadmin's guide that a user manual
  • Gedit -- GNOME's text editor

  • gnome-applets -- some panel apps that aren't in the GNOME user guide
  • gnome-games -- A set of games for gnome. See GnomeGames.

  • gnome-panel -- some MORE panel apps that aren't in the GNOME user guide
  • seahorse
  • x-chat-gnome -- this is a bit of a halfway house, being on our bugzilla but another svn, which makes working on it a little harder. Joachim's done a bit here.
  • This list is incomplete. Please add to it.

Apps we're NOT maintaining:

  • evince -- document viewer for PDF and so on. The app team are doing it themselves.
  • evolution -- email app. The app team are doing it themselves.

Apps I'm finding out about...

  • ekiga -- currently worked on by writers within the Ekiga team, who may be joining the GDP
  • epiphany -- bugzilla uses 'epiphany-docs-maint@gnome.bugs' which suggests they're sorted

  • rhythmbox

User Guide Modules
