Documentation Team Meeting Minutes 2013-11-21


Martin Bless, Xavier Perseguers, Michael Schams, Christopher Stelmaszyk, François Suter


Official manuals - translations?

  • translations
    • no activity on translations at all
    • only short moments of interest, but that's it.
    • as such the Documentation Team will not provide any official way of translating manuals for the time being
    • if strong and regular demand suddenly surfaces, we will review this position
    • close translation projects
    • Old translations in OpenOffice were published as extensions, have automatically been migrated to reST and are available at
      • Maybe we could create one single page with links to these extension renderings

  • new design for the site
    • Ben van 't Ende suggested that is really sexy
    • the design of could be improved
    • furthermore the current design doesn't integrate well into the TYPO3 backend when using the 6.2 documentation module
    • Xavier thinks that our current usage and extension of Sphinx packages must be improved first
    • then we could imagine having two different HTML renderings (for and for BE integration)
  • first contributions to Github mirror

  • integration with Solr
    • Martin to check with Olivier Dobberkau about status
    • no news so far
  • redirections for old links ?
    • status of Fabien's work => no update
  • TER integration
    • update from Xavier => nothing happened
