Kubuntu 6.04 will have three documents in the works:
* the Desktop Guide;
* the Quick Guide; and
* the Release Notes.
Work is currently being done by Jonathan Jesse and Jerome Gotangco but
we invite Kubuntu users to dive in and join the team! With the help of
JonathanRiddell, we will be able to include documents that are tagged as
WIP (Work in Progress) in the coming milestone releases of Kubuntu.
== Wiki Documentation ==
=== New Hotness ===
The documentation on the wiki is beginning to take shape. As always, the
starting page for wiki documentation is
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/UserDocumentation, which contains a (nearly
complete) index of documents. Here are some highlights:
The licence policy for the Ubuntu wiki has been under discussion
recently. The licence for the wiki has been unclear until now, and the
need was felt to establish a proper formal licence to clarify for users
and authors alike the terms on which material can be copied. The final
decision was that the wiki material will be in the Public Domain, i.e.
totally free to be used, modified and copied. The details of the policy
change, the reasons, and the means by which it will be implemented can
be found at https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WikiLicensing.
=== Cleanup of old pages ===
Corey Burger recently had a rush of blood and has done a massive cleanup
operation on old and outdated wiki pages. Many useless pages have been
deleted and many outdated developer specifications have been moved.
=== Work to be Done ===
Much work still remains to be done: lots of the documentation on the
wiki is disorganised and needs a lot of love. We need help, so please
join the Documentation Team mailing list, and visit the wiki team pages
https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WikiTeam and https://wiki.ubuntu.com/WikiToDo for some inspiration! Some pages which need expansion are:
The Documentation Team still has a lot of work to do, and needs your
help! Documentation is a great way to contribute to the Ubuntu
community, even if you don't know how to write programs or build
packages! As always, you can find daily builds of the documentation
(and details of how to contribute) on http://doc.ubuntu.com. Another
great starting place to learn quickly how to get involved is our wiki
pages, especially https://wiki.ubuntu.com/DocteamGettingStarted. You can
also contact us on irc (#ubuntu-doc) or the mailing list
You can also contribute to the Kubuntu documentation by checking the
same website and the same mailing list.
