BoF Notes

(notes by Frederik, please extend)

Doc english as mailing list: not the perfect list name

quality of documentation

  • list on techbase
  • quality of documentation

what's this help, tooltips

  • tooltips too large: on small screen it covers too much

userbase documentation

  • parley manual as guinea pig
  • page size, images, links, semantics
  • versioning of manuals
  • file uploading
  • translation of screenshots

why not wiki to html/pdf directly

specify what should be in manuals (eg not "how to compile")

formats: gnome

offline docs


  • people needed to do the incredibly boring stuff regularily - eg fix tamplates

blog on planetkde about userbase manual writing
