Subject Re: Cleanup of Docs section of OOo wiki?
Date Sun, 18 Dec 2011 19:57:53 GMT
Ah no. Jean is trying to get a feel for the
web interface to the documentation.  Jean,
the typical workflow is to go to the live 

document on the page,
then click on the ASF CMS bookmarklet you installed
from the site.  That will
take you (after maybe a minute or so) to
the page you can use to edit the document.
Clicking on the Edit link will open up a
page with a syntax-hilighted html editor.
When you are done editing the page, check
the "Quick Commit" radio button and type a log
message describing the nature of your edits.
Then hit the Submit button.

If all goes well your changes will be committed
to svn and built to the staging site.  If you
are satisfied with the results then publish
your changes to the live site by clicking on
the Publish Site link and filling out the form.

to make sure your question is answered in context.

to a staging/review area and then onto the server location that serves up as the site.  That
is currently the draft site that will become when the cut-over happens. 
(I believe the Oracle-hosted site has a similar model so this is probably not new news.)

and the documentation project under content/documentation/ (this is what serves up as
I believe).

checkout (just creates a local working copy, doesn't lock anything) to work on the material. 
You must use the https: form of URL for checkout and your first check-in will require your
Apache committer credentials.
