Subject Re: Contributing to FAQ (was deltree does not work)
Date Thu, 01 Nov 2001 11:27:09 GMT
This is one of the reasons I like jGuru - its interactive and updated
dynamically.  But I don't want to step on any Jakarta toes by promoting it
too heavily here.  The jGuru folks would *love* to be tightly coupled with
Jakarta so that their technology hosts Jakarta's FAQ's officially and I've
lobbied for this behind the scenes some.  Why reinvent the wheel on FAQ
management.  jGuru has mastered it - if you see a better implementation of
an interactive FAQ I'd love to know about it!

Try searching for whatever Java problem you're experiencing at jGuru rather
than Google or Sun sometime - I think you'll find the quality and relevance
of hits far superior to anywhere else, and that is not a salesman speaking.
I've often searched Google for answers and then realized I should be
searching jGuru instead and immediately found my answer.  By the way, jGuru
uses Lucene (now a Jakarta project) as its content indexing and searching
mechanism.

But to answer your question about the official Ant FAQ - you have to
checkout the appropriate XML file (xdocs/faq.xml) from the jakarta-ant
module in CVS, modify it, do a 'cvs diff -u' and submit the patch to the
ant-dev list.
