Xubuntu 14.04: Documentation

Registered by Pasi Lallinaho on 2013-11-14

Documentation projects for 14.04:
* Write documentation for new features
* (Extend developer documentation)
* (Extend documentation)
* (Cooperate with the Ubuntu Documentation Project)

Whiteboard

Developer documentation:
* Write some short articles on technical issues
* Subjects: Bzr, Docbook, signing Code of Conduct
* Where do we want this extended information to go?

End-user documentation:
* Different perspectives for the Tour page and the installer slideshow: former tries to "sell" the system, latter should advertise specific features
* Find out from knome/ochosi what's blocking GTK3 Indicators and light-locker
  * GTK3 not packaged yet
  * Get status of Mugshot and MenuLibre from bluesabre
* Re-use sections from Ubuntu Manual
  * "Network Manager" from page 40 useful?
  * "Setting up Thunderbird" page 56?

Translations for end-user documentation:
* Use 80% as cut-off percentage
   * We need to make sure our script queries the *whole* translation, not only a single section at a time
* List all of the translated versions in the startpage

Make sure all packages get new releases with updated translations after NonLanguagePackTranslationDeadline.
