I think it would be great to try to evolve such a document. I start at
the same level as Patrick, but I might like to spend some time
contributing to this too.
Sounds like it would be a good addition to the developers section of the
With some kickoff guidance from the experts, perhaps the whole thing can
be built mostly by newcomers, with oldtimers just watching for errors.
I guess it might be feasible to install a pydoc interface, or maybe some
static variation on that. For example in my svn checkout I can just cd
to the src dir and run pydoc -p 9876. Then browse to localhost:9876/
I would think that additional narrative, diagrams, cross references, and
<what else?> could be useful, but pydoc information would be a nice
starting point, no? Who's the wikimaster?
What would be a good title for a wiki entry page on gramps architecture
-- GrampsArchitecture, maybe? ;-)
Oh, it looks like mediawiki uses "free links" instead of "CamelCase", so
perhaps just "Gramps Architecture"?
