Subject RE: Ann: intro examples - docs in French - index page
Date Mon, 06 Mar 2000 22:25:49 GMT
Presently I am not employed and I would volunteer to do the clean up,
writing (in French or English?), but I am not familiar with cocoon, I also
just started to get to know XML. Since I am a beginner it is the perfect
combination. If I can't understand it then it will be for intermediates. I
did check out the site and found it to be
heavy, and I'm still game. Let me know what you think? Thanks JJD

If it is urgent I can't (overworked right now). But I could do it
within a time frame of 1 or 2 month.  What ought to be done is:
 - cleaning up (quite a lot)
 - homogenizing (e.g. using same basic elements, preferably based on a
single DTD)
 - some more examples
 - better documentation, don't know how yet but should not cost too much and
   be helpful
   - minimal documentation inside each sample directory ?
   - XML comments inside the code ?
   - a global, single XML documentation page using the "official" DTD ?
 - other ideas ????

That's one full week of work at least ... maybe more for somebody with my
and writing skills :)!

So: Right now I will continue to add things in anarchistic ways while
learning myself (like a simple FO example this morning) and in a month or
2 I will take time to clean and package and submit it to the community
if it's still useful then ....

that ok as proposition ?

PS: If you want a really minimal thing I could do it before, but I don't
that the official cocoon site should have quick and dirty examples. You
decide :)
