15 is quite interesting. I went to greg's site, looked around and built
16 this package. It shows up, in chapter form under /usr/share.
17 I used 'elogv' to look at the directional output. Scant. So
18 I'm not sure how to discover the gui/tools one would used, other
19 and manually looking at the chapters one at a time. I quick look at the
20 gentoo wiki revealed little how to access this or other /usr/share/
21 documents; perhaps I have missed the obvious reference pages on those
22 documentation systems?
24 Sure, it's an old doc, but it could be useful?
25 I bring this up as maybe a tie-in doc to the GSoC kernel build work
26 that is currently being performed. [1] Personally, with gentoo being a
27 strong embedded distro, and the IoT movement bringing in lots of new
28 hardware to the linux world, I think these old documents are still
29 valuable for the learning the basics process, particularly related to
30 small and minimized gentoo systems.
32 As such, I am willing to help, but, first I think a comprehensive
33 discussion on documentation on gentoo to tie in all the new, wonderful
34 additions in the gentoo wiki, to some/most of the traditionally
35 available documentation sources, is warranted. Decide what to keep and
36 integrate those resoureces so that they 'flow' one to another for the
37 gentoo community. There are also, many new documentation resources on
38 github and similar sites, so those need to be 'integrated' too. A
39 pattern or template for devs to follow possible?
