feel free to run any tests you want using our docs as a base ...
Thanks. You pick a couple of pages, I'll try running them.
the reason we chose a twiki was because we are all terrified of using
and Emacs - and the twiki syntax is super easy to learn ... If there was a
tool to convert a finished wiki/twiki doc into docbook - that would make
the whole process SOOO much easier for the majority of people - and we
would have alot more docs produced as a nice bonus!
Apart from tables and definition lists I finished the
conversion to xml today.
$ is some special character, hence no dd/dt processing
And yes, it is for twiki :-)
Pity you didn't pick another wiki variant, but c'est la vie.
personally - i took a quick look at the fedora-doc tutorial but i
out when it came to Emacs stuff (pretty early that means).
Good investment.. honest.
Painful, but high rewards in buying the O'Reilly emacs book.
I have never touched emacs in my life and i am very happy editing
vi and gedit. I don't want to learn emacs - i know it is powerful and
efficient once you get familiar with it - but i honestly don't have the
time to get familiar with it! I have already put in years of time
learning vi tricks. I also find the emacs interface outdated and
counter-intuitive (for a newbie anyway).
OK. vim has an xml mode I believe?
So after such a rant ... I would just like to say that it would be
have something other than just emacs to choose from when creating docs for
the fedora-doc project. If a wiki/twiki converter is possible, or
something else (conglomerate?) then bring in on!!
Gimme the test files, and I'll be back :-)
