Subject: [gentoo-project] [RFC] New Overlays project guide
Date: Mon, 02 May 2016 21:22:54
1 Hello, everyone.
3 The documentation of Overlays project [1,2,3] is in pretty bad shape
4 right now. Aside to being outdated, I find the current form not very
5 readable or focused. The large number of short sections makes reading
6 harder, and a lot of information is either useless or goes outside
7 the scope of project documentation.
9 For this reason, I would like to replace the documentation with a new,
10 short guide I've written [4]. The goal would be to make it a 'how
11 to...' form of guide focused on Gentoo Overlays project-specific
12 topics. Right now it covers requesting repositories and reporting bugs
13 on them. Additional topics can be added if necessary.
15 I would like to explicitly avoid including documentation belonging
16 elsewhere such as layman user guides, partial ebuild development guides
17 or VCS guides.
19 What do you think?
