Documentation Help


Hi All,

I'm looking for non-technical people to help me out with updating and expanding on documentation in Bodhi. If you're interested, shoot me a private message. Thanks!

Are you saying that you are going to help writing documentation for bodhi linux, and want more people to help you with that?
Why only via PM?
Isn't this something that should be done openly?

You'll have to change your settings if you want to receive PMs.

Sorry about that - yeah I had a lengthy discussion with ylee in the discord channel a couple days ago. I've already set up a repo for the bodhi guide and have started some revisions.

https://github.com/joel-madero/bodhiGuide

As for PM or not, I really don't care, just thought it might be easier.

I don't know much about Bodhi. I tried to install it once years ago and couldn't. But I do know how to edit and proofread. I did a lot of that for the OpenDocument people. And I've "re-Englished" some online manuals that were written by foreigners.

Can you toss the latest release on a virtual box to walk through the guide and fix as needed? Also, any experience with HTML? For some reason (something I plan on looking at closer later) the guide was turned into a debian package which is just a locally installed web page . . . so everything is in HTML. Also, any experience with git?

Happy to have the help if you're willing to assist. The guide is quite outdated at this point.

I don't have VB and don't want to install it. Too complicated for this old lady! But I do have plenty of disk space so I could try a bare metal install. And I do know basic html, but nothing fancy, none of that docbook stuff.

The only experience I've had with git was to step through a git bisection for a misbehaving kernel and I could only do that because someone else told me how to do it.
