KIWI Documentation

Kostas Koudaras
Hi
I was just reading the KIWI Documention and I found some parts that
need to be renewed since nothing has been done there since 11.3. Now I
am thinking that I could give it a try and renew it but is there
someone who is more relevant from me to do that so that I will not
risk destroy anything?
I am more specifically refering to the repositories and also if there
are any additions to KIWI since the last time. If someone has that
kind of information but hasn't got the time to write it down but
he/she could give me informations/guidelines on this,  I would gladly
do that.

Have fun
Kostas 'Warlordfff' Koudaras

Great idea! :-) In the past, Marcus wrote the documentation and I've
converted it to DocBook and contributed some text and ideas.

I don't know the current state of the KIWI documentation, but I assume
you are right. As far as I know, from time to time small parts were
added or updated to the documentation. However, I guess it wouldn't
hurt to give some parts more love and dedication.

No need to worry, KIWI has a repo; you can't destory anything. :)

First, I would recommend to talk to Marcus and the other friendly
developers on the KIWI mailinglist[1]. They can give you more hints
than I and are more up-to-date about KIWI and its documentation.

Second, the usual steps are cloning the KIWI Git repository, correct the
documentation, and send the patches to Marcus. If he thinks it is ok,
he will integrate it into the main repo. In most cases, he accepted my
patches. ;)

I don't think they changed this approach, but they can tell you on
the mailinglist.

As I said, better ask all the details on the KIWI mailinglist as they
have all the specialists there. :)
