Default Documentation rewriting, reviewing and converting schedule

Hello Xubuntu documentation folks,

it's time to start looking when, and how, we should get the
documentation rewrite finished.


The new documentation should be uploaded on September 20, when the
DocStringFreeze will become effective. We need to convert the
documentation to DocBook before that, and things should start to be in
place a week before the string freeze, on September 13. Small changes
can take place after that, but it's not encouraged.


Where does this leave us?

Practically, we have a week and two days to get the rewriting and
reviewing done. We originally thought we'd take a week to review the
refreshed documentation, but I'm not sure if that's completely
realistic. At this time, we should go into multitasking mode.


1) Continue to work on the rewrites where you see fit

2) If you think a whole section, or a subpage, is ready to be published,
please announce it on this email list


3) When somebody sends a page up to review, review it
* If you think the page is OK to be published and it's technically
correct (covers the correct applications etc.) with no or just grammar
fixes, reply to the mailing list and tell you think it's good to go.
Either me or Elizabeth will eventually "check out" the sections.
* If you think it's not OK to be published, please try to improve
it. If you improve it to the point that you think it's OK to be
published, please reply to the mailing list and tell you changed it, and
it's again up for final review. If you can't improve it yourself, reply
to the mailing list and tell you think it still needs some work (and
point to which areas need that, or if it's the whole page).
* Please respect others' edits, so don't go changing things back
and forth. On the other hand, don't take it seriously that somebody
edited your beloved way of saying things. If you need dispute
resolution, first try solving it yourself; refrain from editing the
page. If that doesn't help, contact me or Elizabeth to ask for advice.


4) Those who were willing to work on DocBook, again, contact me via IRC
(knome@freenode). I've started the conversion already, and as soon as
new sections/subpages are checked out, I will convert them to DocBook. A
rule of thumb: DON'T TOUCH THE CHECKED OUT PAGES. I will be subscribed
to the checked out sections on the wiki to see if we need to commit
changes to DocBook too, but please don't touch them unless you really
need to. If possible, ask me first.


Optimistically, I hope we will have anything under review (undergone
steps 1&2) before this Sunday.


I will get back to you later.

Cheers,
Pasi

Default Documentation rewriting, reviewing and converting schedule

Here's where I stand on the sections I've been working:



Section 6. Printing

and Scanning - is still blank

*** Printing
is ready for review

*** Scanning
has not been touched yet. I don't have a scanner to test with.



Section 7. Managing

Installed Applications

*** Main page and all sub-pages ready for review.



NOTE: The two sections above are the only ones I have gone
through to check that the menu hierarchy and wording match the
latest Quantal changes which appeared last week. The sections
mentioned below still have the old terminology.



Section 3. Getting

to know your desktop environment

*** Pasi and I both worked on these but I think they are all ready
for review. Customizing

the appearance is marked as complete.



Section 5. Internet and Networks

*** Network

Connections is ready for review

*** Troubleshooting
- bluesabre and I have both worked on this one. I'm okay with it.

*** Connecting

to Servers - Pasi did this one and I just reviewed. Looks okay
to me.



Section 8. Keeping

your computer safe - Pasi did the main section and I did the
sub-sections. I think they're all ready.

*

Section 9. Hardware

Devices - I think the whole section is ready except for Mice

and Keyboards. That hasn't been touched since the initial
copy.



Comments and/or questions welcome.

Jack Fromm

I have a scanner that I could connect either to my main X-box or the
Quantal testing box I have.

Let me know.

Thanks.

OK. I haven't really spent _that_ much time working with Quantal -
too buggy. So if I'm working on this, is it OK that I'm going to use
my X 12.04 box for the purposes of testing?

Thank you.

As long as you make sure the menu paths are the same, I think it's
OK.
