Subject RE: [User Docs] What do we as a community want for user documentation or AOO
Date Sat, 22 Sep 2012 16:24:26 GMT
I am not clear what the lazy consensus is about.

Clearly, there is no restriction on anyone contributing to User Guides for Apache OpenOffice
on ODFAUthors, beyond the terms/conventions/what-ever that apply to contributions there.

So I suppose what is being asked for is consensus that there will not, at this time, be any
separate effort inside of the Apache OpenOffice project and the project will look to relying
on the ODFAuthors site for emergence of updated User Guides.  Contributions should be made

In other words, there won't be any forking of ODFAuthors work into the project.  I assume
that means avoidance of duplicate effort as well.

I'm aligned with that direction.

Based on the discussion in this thread and on the wiki page it appears 
for the short term that Scenario 2 is the best way to go. At this point 
I would like to ask for lazy consensus to use ODFAuthors site and the 
3.4 documents already there to create and publish updated documentation.
I will leave this open until 2012-09-26 at 05:45 UTC.
