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 The guide is quite outdated at this point.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.

Hey Hazel,

Sorry I got caught up with a newborn and work. I'm back though. Have you had a chance to install Bodhi? If not, can you try to install it? I'm available to chat on the Bodhi Discourse Channel: https://discordapp.com/invite/Qrn4rsP

I can vouch for Hazel. She also assisted us at the Slackware Documentation Project.

I would be interested in assisting. I'm running a bare metal install later today and will try to look at the guide.
Thank you.

I was going to enable PM but apparently that's for paid subscription only.

Find me on the discord channel or email me (my user name @ usa.com).

To PM you need to be a senior member which is 1000 posts.

another reason why our old forum was better. no need to have to wait and earn these points to be able to use PM. Just saying see other thread under bodhi subforum.

Sounds great. Shoot me an email once you get it and we'll go from there. Definitely would like to push this forward as fast as possible. I can send you the individual HTML files to take a look at and then you can edit verbage either directly in the HTML file (if you prefer) or just send me edits on a separate document and I'll push them to git.

Or you can set up git and go that route. A bit more work but then you get credit for your commits
