I've setup my server to serve the gentoo docs, and I too have the same
problem with the stray character. I'm pretty new to apache, so how
exactly do I go about fixing this?

It is most likely because your apache server tells your browser your files use 
ISO-8859-1 encoding. Our files use UTF-8.

An easy way to find out is to use curl -I

Removing architecture-specific obsoleted hb-install- files

Hi all,

I've removed hb-install-{medium,disk,bootloader,kernel}.xml from CVS. If you
still need it, you can find it through the Attic/ in the ViewCVS.

Wkr,
      Sven Vermeulen

Imo it's better (as we do already) to point to the GCC Manual. Any attempt
to list CFLAGS will result in more and more updates anyway and we'll never
be complete (hell, even the GCC Manual isn't complete from time to time).

No, no. countryName is the question posed, countryName_default is the
default answer given.

For instance:
  countryName = "Country Name (2 letter code)"
  countryName_default = "BE"

Weird, it should be 0.organizationName_default (the "0" denotes the first
organisation. You can have multiple organisations listed).

Sorry... I was excited when I wrote my original message...

I was speaking of the possibility of having all the local documents, man
pages, info's, etc served up via apache.

Imagine how nice it would be to be able to browse any installed doc on your
local machine with... say... Opera. No need for an internet connection,
etc...

Yup, that's what I was thinking of... I was a bit excited when I wrote the
original message...

As far as complexity goes.. would it be any more than running the docs
through an html converter and generating an index for the doc and then
adding a link to a master index?

I'm not always near a hotspot when I travel... Having local docs that I can
browse with a simple html browser would be nice...

Well, providing all documentation without any coupling to the packages
themselves isn't possible (imagine how many resources would have to be put
in installing packages, separating documentation and integrating all
documentation).

Personal Status Update

Hi all,

Here it is again, a personal status update :)

** Done previous month

- Officialised architecture-specific handbooks
- Continued working on part 3 of the Gentoo Handbook (1 chapter left)
- Wrote the Installation Tips 'n Tricks document
- Updated the Gentoo Handbook for 2004.1 release
- Resolved a couple of bugs (47)

** Not done but wished I did

- Finished third part of the Gentoo Handbook
  Reason: Too little time
- Have /etc/portage/* documented well
  Reason: too much faith in developers :)

** Want to do in May

- Finish part 3 of the Gentoo Handbook

Okay, it's not a huge list, but there are some other Gentoo-related aspects
that need my attention and I'm being hold on a tight leash wrt time:
  - exams approaching (starting the end of may until the beginning of july)
  - project deadlines approaching (this and next week)
  - social obligations improving

So May and June will be rather quiet from my part, hopefully this'll improve
