Subject [proposal] Cocoon documentation system
Date Fri, 14 Jan 2005 07:20:23 GMT

At I propose the 
architecture of a new extensible documentation system. My first goal is reusing 
existing functionality (SVN, Forrest, static web pages). Writing the missing 
pieces (a small web application to edit docs online) shouldn't be too difficult 
- especially using CocoonForms (HTMLArea with HTMLCleaning convertor are shining 
here!) and Flowscript.

At the end of the document you find a roadmap. It also contains some parts where 
I *really* need some help by others:

  - component (Java) that reads from and commits to SVN - should work over
    WebDAV, shouldn't it?
    I know there are some specialist in this community who could help out
    here (Unico, Gianugo, Guido)
  - enable the publishing process (forrestbot or cron)
  - SSL setup

I don't think that a technical solution will directly lead to better docs. I 
just think that making the doc authoring process much easier will invite much 
more people to help out.
