Indy Docs and Collaboration
When I first got involved with
the Indy Documentation project, it
was because I thought Indy was a great tool... and such a great tool needed
better documentation. Over time, the quantity and quality of the
documentation has improved. But the number of contributors has never quite
reached the level that I expected.
I've generally attributed that
short-coming to the fact that far fewer people are interested in writing
documentation than writing code. But I also suspected that the process might
have been too complex (or just plain tedious). We'd like to do something
about that... but we're not quite sure (yet) exactly what that
something would entail.
We do know that we'd like to
make the process more interactive. We want to make it more accessible
too. So, in general, what would it take to get more people invloved
in documenting an Open Source project?
We'd love to have your your
feedback. You can voice your opinions on the Indy
Docs discussion group at Yahoo.com (registration
