Important : 2006.0 Handbooks

Hi devs,

Most of you would have noticed the 2006.0 stuff (copied over 2005.0 + a
few minor changes) sitting under /doc/en/handbook/draft/2006.0.

Starting in a while and over most of the weekend, I'll be making quite a
few major changes to the x86 handbook (mainly) as well as a few changes
to the other handbooks to get them ready for 2006.0.

The main reason for this email is to let our translation teams know that
stuff will change quite fast over the weekend and I'd like to request
you all to wait a while before you start syncing with en.

I'll drop in a note as soon as most of the stuff is done, so that you
guys can start on what you do best :)

Thanks & Regards,

Just to clarify, the *major* changes will be on the x86 handbook only.
The others are expected to be minor and hence not much of an issue. If
any of you other chaps would like to lend a hand (like JoseJX who's
taking care of PPC) would be fine, please make your changes to
doc/en/handbook/draft/2006.0 though.

Also, due to the large number of changes on x86, I'm thinking of two
things :

a) A tracker bug where I'll just list out the changes, adding
stuff/clear your doubts if any.[1]

b) A short IRC meeting sometime over the weekend to discuss how best to
incorporate the new things into the handbook.

Not too sure how b will work out though.

TIA folks!

Hi,

Not sure if you're the right person…

There seems to be a small error in the Gentoo Linux 2005.1 x86 Handbook.

In section 5.d Installing Portage from CD is asks the user to work with
the snapshots directory.

On the CD I downloaded from the Gentoo website, the directory is called
snapshot, not snapshots.

Forgive me if you're already aware of this. I know very little about
Linux and am following the instructions carefully - which are so far
excellent by the way.

Regards,

Bob Gray.

The 2005.1-r1 CD fixed this.

Viewing project status

I'm the head member of Serbian Translation Team for GDP (most probably,
the futurer Lead Translator for Serbian language).
My team grew up in the last few days - we are now 5 or 6 (one member
left the team, but other 2 came).
The problem is viewing project status - which files are translated,
which are not. I want democracy here: every member to be able to choose
what he wishes to translate. Take a look here:
http://usera.imagecave.com/daniel1988/gentoo_project_status.jpg
It would be nice if member could edit this in order to add their name in
the adequate place and change the status of the file (3rd column). 4th
column will be my duty. And some security will be nice: authentification
before accessing the page or something like that.
After the translation of the file is finished, it will be uploaded on
our SVN. Later I can take it from SVN, check it once again for common
mistakes and submit the file at bugs.gentoo.org .
What do you think about this? Great, right?

The problem is that I don't know how to do this (that's the reason I ask
you here). Maybe a subforum under forums.gentoo.org, where only user of
Serbian Translation Team will have access to write and edit. In this
case, how to add a table, similar with this from screenshot, in there?

Regards,
Daniel Manesku

$Id$ keyword is mandatory?

I would like to drop $Id$ from all Vietnamese xml files. It causes a
lot of trouble for me to sync with main tree and generate patch for
b.g.o. Can I drop it?
PS. Are you going to migrate to subversion?
