It *is* open. It's just an informal meeting of interested
people. German speakers can find more information here
although the July meeting isn't there, yet (And I discovered
that it actually starts at 18:30 ;-)

No. Usually we sit together afterwards to have some beer.

If there's agreement on this schedule, I'll check back with
Peter Schaub.

Thanks to David for putting this together so nicely!

Titel:   Technische Dokumentation mit Apache Forrest
   Styleguides und andere Technische Dokumente stellen uns
   vor immer mehr Herausforderungen:
   - Mehrere Personen arbeiten an demselben Dokument:
     Usability-Experten, Designer, technische Autoren,
     Entwickler, ...
   - Die Leser erwarten ein Dokument im Intranet: immer
     aktuell, leicht verfügbar, hübsch "gestyled" und
   - Es ist eine (identische) Druckversion/PDF nötig,
     die in Datenbanken abgelegt wird.

   Mit Apache Forrest ( steht ein freies
   Publikationswerkzeug zur Verfügung, das einen hierbei
   unterstützt. Basierend auf Standards wie XML und HTML,
   kann mit Forrest aus verschiedenen Quelldokumenten (z.B.
   XML, DocBook, OpenOffice) eine einheitliche Ausgabe
   (z.B. in HTML und PDF) erzeugt werden.

   Im Vortrag stelle ich Apache Forrest vor und berichte
   über unsere Erfahrungen beim Schreiben von Styleguides.
   - Was ist Forrest und wie funktioniert es? Vor-/Nachteile.
   - Wie schreibt man die Inhalte?
   - Wie kann ich bestehende Dokumente übernehmen?
   - Wie kann man das Erscheinungsbild dem Kunden anpassen?
   - Wie kann man komplexe Dokumente strukturieren?
