Re: Documentation


I downloaded docs.xubuntu.com and recreated it as a subdomain at ugdocs.kristal.ca <http://ugdocs.kristal.ca>. They have a Creative Commons license that is quite liberal.

The whole package zipped is less than 400k and I can email it to whomever wants it.

Using their website's content may be a little more difficult than copying it with WebHTTrack because they probably used a CMS to generate that content. If we copy their website like this, we will have a website incapable of living within a CMS.

    Would it make sense to use (with permission) Xubuntu's
    documentation modified for UG? WebHTTrack Website Copier can do
    the trick.

    Hi everyone,


    I haven't noticed that except today. Despite the great efforts we
    have put all together into Ubuntu GNOME for 2 cycles for 12
    months or so, we are still far behind others like Xubuntu. Yes,
    Xubuntu is older than Ubuntu GNOME as a project and community but
    that should not stop us to go the extra miles and that should not
    be a reason to remain behind ...

    That said, I am very interested to have something similar. After
    lots of efforts and time to build Ubuntu GNOME Wiki area from
    scratch, I must say that I am personally not happy with that I
    have personally achieved and I feel we as a team must do more.
    Yes, we have achieved the first step, well done everyone but who
    said that is the end? that was only the beginning :)

    Thus, this is the one and only high priority suggest - for now -
    that I'd like to bring to discussion for Ubuntu GNOME VV Cycle.

    Remember, we are talking about 14.04 LTS .. NOT 14.10 nor 15.04
    .. why? because these are 9 months releases only and the Wiki
    Area should be enough for that. Unless of course, you have a
    logical reason to suggest the otherwise.

    So, what do you think? are we able to go for that? I am sure
    others can help us and I mean Ubuntu Wiki Team but we as Ubuntu
    GNOME community, are we able to do that?

    Again, I am very interested but I will NOT do this alone .. we
    are a team and we should work as one :)


    Sorry if there are some typos or funny words ... I am so sleepy
    ... it is 1:30AM now .. ZzZz
