Xubuntu/Xfce Documentation

Registered by Jannis Pohlmann on 2008-11-20

There are some docs written for Xfce which are linked from the GUI via "Help" buttons but they are hard to keep up to date from the developer's point of view. Since Xubuntu and other distributions could benefit a lot from well-maintained upstream docs it would be great to have more people working on that. During UDS I'd like to discuss how much potential there is to get Xubuntu people involved in writing and improving upstream documentation.

Whiteboard

If there are any discussion sessions about Xubuntu/Xfce docs during the Jaunty UDS that I could be involved in via IRC or teleconferencing, please let me know. I would like to be involved. Thanks! -- Jim

@Jim: I'd love to get you involved. I remember you were actually the one to raise this topic on the xfce4-dev mailing list months several months ago. I also remember there was almost no (if any) feedback to your offer to help out with docs. I think it's a good idea to make it possible for you to take part in the discussion and planning. -- Jannis

I have brought this up on the Xfce-dev mailing list twice in the past month or so, but I'm not getting much of a response. I know docs aren't a high priority for developers, but we do need updated information. We'll need to see what we can do to get a bit more attention for this project from Xfce developers. -- Jim
