what do you need when you write some text? Content, of course. Apart from your content you need an additional part to make it a shiny contribution: fonts! If you don’t know already: we have now a new repository dedicated just to fonts.
Hi DocBook lovers,
browsed through a book, used your favorite search engine, or posted on LinkedIn, Xing, or the DocBook mailinglist to hunt for answers to your problems?
As an additional alternative, I’m happy to announce my latest project:
The DoCookBook Project
(released under Creative Commons License)
The tongue-twisting name is a word play and picks up the two central topic about DocBook and cookbook.
As I wrote last time, I’ve migrated our documentation to a public SVN server on BerliOS. There you can get the English sources of the official openSUSE documentation and some business products too.
Apart from Russian, I’m very happy that the Hungarian translation of the openSUSE documentation is underway! Thanks to Kálmán Kéménczy, he will publish the Hungarian documentation soon. Currently, some translatation, proofreading, and polishing have to be done, so stay tuned (see https://svn.berlios.de/svnroot/repos/opensuse-doc/trunk/documents/distribution/hu.)
By the way, the Hungarian books from the 11.1 and 11.2 release can be downloaded in the Hungarian portal.
If someone from the Hungarian community wants to help, please support Kálmán and contact him for futher details.
Thanks Kálmán, for your ongoing work! I’m sure, everybody appreciates your work, be it in the past, present, or future.
Adding files to a SVN server is usually a task done in seconds. However, having several independent SVN repositories and wanting to “combine” them, this is not trivial—especially if you want to preserve the history.
The doc team had had three different, independent repositories on BerliOS (opensuse-ha-doc, opensuse-docmaker, and opensuse-lfl) all holding separate information. This was a bit silly, so my task was to consolidate them into opensuse-doc by keeping all history.
Before and during the openSUSE conference, some nice people (Jens-Daniel, Jürgen, Darix) created the following site for you:
Thank you guys! I like the thrilling name.
It’s a static page (at the moment?) and collects the current documentation from several products and projects. Probably you will see more to come in the next weeks.
Update (AJ since Thomas is ill) 2010-10-27: Based on the feedback received, we’re going to change now rtfm.opensuse.org to docs.opensuse.org. So, you can reach the fine side under http://docs.opensuse.org and http://doc.opensuse.org.
For those who has used KIWI manually already know the details: KIWI’s configuration file is XML and based on a RELAX NG schema. This article give developers a little background of the history, a short overview of some design decisions around KIWI’s RELAX NG schema, and how to customize it to your needs.
