Hi Lex

We need a publishing framework plus workflow capability.  A wiki might be a bit too simplistic to really drive the process.

Let me think a bit about this.  I think I may have  a solution.

Hi Hennie,

First of all I wonder how we would keep track of the French / English versions. For example, sha is a French contributor who make tutorials and articles in French and also new documentation pages each time someone has developed a new functionality. But how would she set a page as "to be (re)translated".

And also you should be aware that very few people contribute for now. Especial non-French speaking people... We have a translators mailing list with about 30 people who subscribed to it, and we never ask them anything because we are not organized enough. The dev team is but the rest is under construction or has to be build.

So I think your idea is good but someone should be in charge of the wiki to set it up, moderate, find clever ways to handle contributions... And also he/she could be in charge of the translator team in order to motivate and organize work. What do you think about that?

lex.

Hi Lex

Why don't you consider the following.

1. Start an only wiki for SILEX.
2. Publish both the French and English versions and request selected members to as and when they can update the WIKI content and translate to English.
3. I suggest keep Enlgish at the Top and French at the bottom of the pages.

It would also make more sense if the documentation is available in pdf format and this could be fed from the WIKI.

Hello!

I am happy to see that this list has people on it :-) If some of you are bothered by the discussions, send me an e-mail (lex@silex-ria.org) and I will send you only the news.

Concerning the hosting issue, I use Silex on OVH servers and it works fine for me. I don't know Media Temple in fact.

I agree with you when you say that Silex needs wider exposure... And we should translate the rest of the documentation in English (only half of it has been translated)...

bye,
lex.

Ron,


I'll be glad to. Media Temple is really a cutting edge setup. I should  

ask are you guys able to pay server fees?


There are other possibilities if not. I'm a small freelance graphic  

artist in Grand Junction, Colorado and have a partner, a C++ guy who  

helps me with a lot of code for my sites. He runs his own servers for  

several sites I'll talk with him too and let you know what the  

possibilities are from my chair.


From just seeing your demo video I can tell how solid an app you  

folks are building. Tried to get into it but my stupidity when it  

comes to French was showing. Seems that my French teacher in college  

was a Russian fellow who talked with a lisp. It was really easy not to  

learn to love learning the language. Wish I had.

Ron,


I think a server called media temple would be really good. I'll look

into it.

I've got a couple small sites with them right now but they are by

far the best

server I've found when it comes to being on the edge of new

developments with

human beings who are concerned and helpful.


They aren't real costly. If you'd like I could make a few inquires

and see if

they might not even be willing to offer their services for free or

at a lower

rate?

Hi,


Silex has 100+ downloads every day.


As you may know, the core SILEX team is in Paris, France.

Now, even though French is the best language in the world...

...we understand that you don't want to learn it just to use Silex.


A lot of users would appreciate a community in their country.

So, in our attempt to go global we want to go local near where you

live.


Wherever you are, we are looking for people to help out Silex users

in your country and in your language, so if you feel like helping

out, let us know.

We are thinking of forums, tutorials, local gatherings, etc.

But we are open to suggestions.


In exchange you get a link on the Silex homepage

and the chance to become the focal point of a community.



Yours sincerely,

die SILEX Mannschaft
