Description Karsten Wade 2005-04-22 06:22:51 UTC
Include in a comment any changes or comments on suggested changes for the Fedora Docs Project webpages. Use this to have discussions about changes. Spawn new bugs where a suggestion is more complex, making sure to have that bug block this bug.
Comment 1 Eric Jon Rostetter 2005-04-22 19:57:09 UTC
The following ideas have been suggested: * Better info on how to use CVS (probably pointing to another doc/page) * Better info on XML templates, use, tools/GUIs, and most importantly a tutorial, demo, or example. Maybe skeleton/template to get started on a new page with? * Specifically state that we will accept new docs in *any* format, and the FDP will then help convert it to the XML format, etc. * Specifically state that the inital doc author does not have to be the same as the maintainer. * Perhaps we need docs on a style guide, document format (required sections, etc). * We need a link on the web pages to the wiki. * Co-ordinate activity with Fedora Legacy Project in some way, not yet sure how. * Web page should have more information/pages such as: + Participation page (how to participate, etc) + Mailing list page (how to subscribe, link to archives, etc) + FAQ page * Spell out policies (like only accept docs about FC/Extras software, not 3rd party software, etc).
Comment 2 Karsten Wade 2005-04-24 10:59:57 UTC
Update FDP project page now includes: * Link to CVS Usage in Wiki (a draft doc, but a good URL) * States that any format accepted and conversion services offered * States that someone needs to maintain it, does not have to be the author * Provides overall link to Wiki Page alread provides information on how to participate and a link to the mailing list. The Docs Project FAQ is very out of date, we need to review if that is a necessary item or not. Other process, style, tutorials, examples, and the like are being currently worked on and will be linked in when ready.
Comment 3 Eric Jon Rostetter 2005-04-25 20:52:28 UTC
Participation info is lacking in quality/quantity. Link to mailing list isn't sufficient IMHO, should have several links including a link to archives, and additional info about subscribe, unsubscibe, usage, expectations, etc. I forgot there was an FAQ when I wrote my inital bug entry, but there was, and the link to it is obvious on the front page, so my mistake there. Maybe change it to "improve/update FAQ". A lot of the stuff I posted could go in the faq (formats accepted, author and maintainer different, etc).

I think this is being done elsewhere.
