Default writing doc for logcheck

I wrote a draft doc for app-admin/logcheck, a replacement for logsentry
that has a built-in database of rules and an active upstream. See
<http://dev.gentoo.org/~phajdan.jr/logcheck.xml>. It would be great if
it could become at some point a part of the official documentation. I'm
the maintainer of the package and use it on about 3 Gentoo installations.

What should I do to make it included in the official docs? I think one
of the steps is filing a bug, but it seems that there may be some
discussion first what is missing or wrong in the current draft, which
may be easier to do in a mailing list and not bugzilla.

The package also has to be stabilized on its architectures, as we don't document ~arch stuff.

I see. I had to write some kind of docs so it could be arch-tested. It
probably won't go stable too soon because it's in portage for only two
months. I'll come back when it gets stabilized.

By the way, I enhanced http://dev.gentoo.org/~phajdan.jr/logcheck.xml
with Mathew Summers' suggestions on #gentoo-doc (not all of them yet).

As the package is going to take some time to stabilize, is it acceptable
to link to my ~ page on dev.gentoo.org in an elog message?

Sure. I may have a patch for you soon with some minor GuideXML fixes, so ping me if you don't get one in a week or so.

Pinging you then. By the way, I have opened a stabilization bug and
we're getting some first Arch Testers' reports. It would be nice to get
the GuideXML quite ready for the inclusion.

Actually, it looks pretty good. You musta cleaned it up. Only a couple of things left:

1. In CL 1.5, add parentheses around the RED comment text, just like you did in CL 1.4.

2. Just to make it more clear, change "${EDITOR}" in CL 1.6 to "nano -w" -- we generally use nano for basic editing examples. Experienced users will already be using a different tools, but inexperienced users might not know what ${EDITOR} is.

3. Maybe add <c> tags around each instance of logcheck where it is referred to as a program name. For the *user* "logcheck" you can leave it as-is. You might also want to enclose syslog-ng in <c> tags, too, before CL 1.3.

4. MOST IMPORTANT: do **not** do "echo app-admin/logcheck ~arch >> whatever"
- This is wrong! You NEVER add the ~arch keyword!! Just list app-admin/logcheck in package.keywords. This applies to any package in Portage.
- So CL 1.2 should be:

# <i>echo app-admin/logcheck >> /etc/portage/package.keywords</i>

Open a GDP bug once logcheck is stabilized, and we can add the revised guide to /doc/en/

Thanks! Now app-admin/logcheck is stable on x86 and amd64 (still ~ppc,
hopefully that's fine).

I've submitted https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=322223 and
attached the suggested GuideXML. Could you take another look at it?
