Subject httpd-site and docs project web page
Date Fri, 05 Jan 2001 02:30:58 GMT
Well, there has been some discussion about the docs project on the members
list today.  There is still no resolution of the cvs mail issue, since
there are some objections to randomly hacking up the relevant perl
scripts.

In the mean time, I'll try to always send my changes to this list before
I commit them.  (I haven't been doing that for 2.0 changes, but I will
start now.)

In other news, the people who have commit access to httpd-docs* should
now also have commit access to httpd-site (ie httpd.apache.org).
The first thing that I'd like to do is to put up a page describing this
project.   I suggest that it go in
httpd.apache.org/docs-project/index.html

Below is a first stab at a page.  The "Participants" section is, of
course, superfluous.  However, I think its nice to give a little
recognition.  I'm sure I missed people; no offence intended.

<p>The Documentation Project is an effort to improve the quality of
the documentation included with the Apache HTTP Server.  Participation
is open to anyone with a little time, a little knowledge of HTML, and
hopefully a little knowledge about the Apache HTTP Server.  No
programming knowledge is required, so this is a great way for
non-programmers to contribute to the success of Apache,
and to have their work read by millions of Apache users.</p>

<p>This is <strong>not</strong> a mailing list where users should ask
questions on how to configure Apache.  For this type of question,
please consult the sources listed in the <a
href="../docs/misc/FAQ.html">FAQ</a>.</p>

<h2>How to get Involved</h2>

<p>There are lots of ways to get involved in the documentation
project, including fixing a few typos and spelling mistakes,
translating the documentation into other languages, writing
tutorials to help new users, or just expressing your
opinion about suggested changes.</p>

<p>To start contributing, or just to find out what it is all about,
you can subscribe to the mailing list by sending an email to <a
href="mailto:apache-docs-subscribe@apache.org"
>apache-docs-subscribe@apache.org</a>.  For details on how to
contribute, the best place to start is Ken Coar's <a
href="http://apache-server.com/tutorials/ATdocs-project.html">Documentation
Project Tutorial</a>.</p>
