Subject [PATCH] Second try: External Apache tutorials and mod/index.html reorg
Date Wed, 23 Aug 2000 16:20:19 GMT
Okay, I'm going to try this one again too.

I see at least a couple possible reasons why my doc patches are being
ignored:

1. The people who have commit access don't like them, or think that they
are not very important.
2. Nobody with commit access is reading the docs list, or has time
to deal with submitted patches.

In any case, the exercise seems rather pointless if patches get no
feedback at all.  I'm not trying to be snotty.  I'm just trying to see if
I am wasting my time contributing here.  Please let me know.

Subject: [PATCH] External Apache tutorials

I am submitting a new file for the docs which consists of links to (mostly
external) tutorials.  This is meant to help alleviate the steep learning
curve and lack of task-oriented material in the current apache docs by
leveraging some of the great material that is out there on the web, and
putting it in an easily accessible place for newcomers.

There are a few concerns with using external linked material:
1. We need to be careful to check the accuracy of the docs.
2. Some of these links will obviously grow stale over time,
so some maintenance will be needed.
3. Some sites may not like being "deep-linked" in this way. (No permission
was requested.)

Overall, I think the advantages outweigh these concerns.

Attached is a draft document which can be dropped into htdocs/manual/misc
and a patch to htdocs/manual/index.html to reference it.
