Subject [jira] Commented: (DERBY-259) [doc] submission formats listing
Date Thu, 07 May 2009 21:18:45 GMT

    [ https://issues.apache.org/jira/browse/DERBY-259?page=com.atlassian.jira.plugin.system.issuetabpanels:comment-tabpanel&focusedCommentId=12707119#action_12707119

Kathey Marsden commented on DERBY-259:

Shouldn't documentation submissions be as a patch  in dita format? I would like to close this
Won't fix.  I don't think we should explicitly encourage other formats although of course
they could still be attached to issues if folks want to provide content without building the
docs etc.  I'd like to close this Won't fix.

> A complete listing of submission formats for content need to be compiled.  They should
be listed in a prefered listing, then in order of non-prefered, but with specific restrictions
( please try to do this type of restrictions) in order of least wanted.
> For example, if you are going to send in a document in this format, please try to send
in the graphics if files that were imported/copied into the final document.
> I would stress that the important portion is the submission, and the second being the
file format.  If they have time to use a format that is easy for release, then that is fine.
 If they don't want to mess with the final output format, this is also fine.
> Also, noted that Forrest and OpenOffice License types might not mesh with Apache.org.
 This was brought up in forrest and asked by Ross (May 2005). 
> If this is a problem, then possibly Microsoft product outputs don't have a problem?
