A quick and dirty blog post to keep the world out there in the loop about what is done by a dozen of people in a big meeting room with a view over Brno, right next to a small meeting room with a view over Brno filled with people that work on a toolkit.
What the docs posse is doing:
- The team updated some parts of the GNOME user help for 3.4. Everybody got assigned an area. I tested the printing related pages (as far as possible without a printer, but abusing translation templates helps to check for string correctness).
- Marc-Andre showcased GNOME Boxes so it can receive some documentation and usability love.
- The team tried to use GNOME Documents and as some stuff was not clear or easily discoverable Cosimo was brave enough to face our questions and criticism (appreciated).
- Jim showed some documentation overview ideas.
- Baptiste updated parts of the gnomine documentation.
- Rumors also tell that new Baobab documentation and improved examples on developer.gnome.org will be available soon.
What I’ve been doing:
- As part of Google Code-In, Ivaylo Kalinov Markov proposed a better organized wiki frontpage for the GNOME Translation project.
I finally merged this with a few tweaks. Thanks for your great work, Ivaylo!
- Triaged some open documentation bug reports and as usual if you try to fix one thing you end up finding three other issue. Or underlying infrastructure issues.
- Tried to manually find mismatches between documentation component assignees in GNOME Bugzilla, the GNOME documentation team, and the reality.
- Other stuff that’s not yet ready for primetime. :)
