Ok, so let's concentrate on information contents and then deal with
formats and technical details as we go. I agree that we need a
coordinator to produce rough roadmaps -- what needs to be documented --
and the more detailed outlines/structures of each potential docs.
A potential problem is in possible changes in the program: it does not
make much sense to document parts that are actively being developed.
Fortunately, as I understand it, the program itself is not supposed
to change much. Any additional functionality should be done by adding
plugins, which will result in additional doc (as opposed to re-writing
same text over and over).
If nobody else wants to volunteer as a coordinator, I can try to work
out some guidelines and offer them for discussion. Unfortunately, my
writing skills are those of a foreigner, but it should do for developing
Does anyone else would like to take a lead?
