OpenSolaris: Documentation tutorial buffet
By sch on Nov 07, 2006
Each of the community groups that make up OpenSolaris is experimenting with different styles of introductory materials (or procedures), so that potential contributors don't get blocked on the details and can focus on their real intention—contributions. The Documentation community group has been energetically pursuing a complete offering: they have a large document tree, they're using a "scratchpad" on the Genunix wiki, and they have at least one mailing list. They even have a Flash animated tutorial, illustrating how to use a DocBook XML toolchain. Slick.
