Yelp Roadmap


What are your plans for GNOME 2.20 (next 4 months, before feature and UI freezes)?

  • Integrate yelp-document and yelp-spoon branches
    • Fixes several long standing bugs related to ref counting and synchronisation issues
    • Much faster
    • Kills scrollkeeper and replaces with (backwards compatible) new desktop-agnostic library

What are your plans for GNOME 2.22 (next year)?

  • Improve stylesheets (layout) for printing and docbook
  • Revisit table 'o contents. Try and improve.
  • Add project Mallard support

Do you have plans for a future release?

Do you have any goals from 2.18 that were not achieved? Why?

  • Integrate yelp-document
  • Begin Mallard support
    • Both due to lack of developer time

Is there something that is really missing in our infrastructure or platform that would help you?

  • Replacement for GnomeProgram and gnome_url_show in gtk+ / smaller library

    • Would remove our dependance on libgnome / libgnomeui

Do you have plans to work on other modules not maintained by you? What are they?

Do you have any GNOME-wide goals suggestions for the next releases?

  • (Possibility for 2.20) finish migration of modules to gnome-doc-utils
  • (Less so. Maybe for 2.22) move all documentation meta-data (.omf files) to new Spoon format (if the format is finalised properly by release)
  • (Desired) review of all documentation, bring up to current release
