openSUSE 13.1 beta1 does not contain any documentations

Yasuhiko Kamata
Hello all,

I'm now testing openSUSE 13.1 beta1, but noticed that no documentations
(opensuse-{kvm,manuals,reference..}_$LANG-*.noarch.rpm) found in
repo/oss/suse/noarch directory.

In OBS side, opensuse-manuals_$LANG (in project "Documentation") was
marked as "broken" ("Files could not be expanded..").

is it OBS server problem? or any other problem?

Thanks,

yes.

It has been decided to move the openSUSE documentation to
http://activedoc.opensuse.org/. ActiveDoc is a new interactive openSUSE
documentation platform where you can not only read the manuals, but
also can edit them in WYSIWYG style.
Compared to sending patches for XML sources, this will make it
much easier for people outside the documentation team to participate
in the openSUSE documentation.
As a consequence, the openSUSE manuals will no longer be maintained
from the XML sources in SVN, but rather directly on ActiveDoc.

on 13.1 we have way more packages than fit on a DVD (image). Therefore
it was decided to drop all manuals except the Start-Up Guide. See
bugzilla: https://bugzilla.novell.com/show_bug.cgi?id=840026
(they will be available for reading online, of course).

Whether these drops also apply to the other distribution formats (e.g.
FTP) IMHO remains subject of discussion. Personally I would appreciate
to have documentation packages for the FTP distribution. It's possible
to export HTML and PDF from ActiveDoc and package these formats.

As for the translation, it was our plan to approach the translators
soon in order to discuss on this list how to handle translations. We are
currently trying to figure out how to make the transition for the
translators as easy as possible.

Looks like we should start this discussion now ;-) - Karl and Tomáš,
would you please share what you have found out until now?

Note:
Ludwig, would you please subscribe to opensue-doc in order to be able
to follow this discussion?
Everybody: Please keep Ludwig in Cc until he subscribes to this list.

I have a silly question - how? ;-)

I logged in on activedoc with Konqueror, but don't see an edit button
anywhere. The only additions in the UI are my username etc. in the
header and the "View" and "Revisions" tabs below the headline.


I'd like to fix a small bug in

http://activedoc.opensuse.org/book/opensuse-123-security-guide/23-profiling-your-web-applications-using-changehat/742

23.2.2 Location and Directory Directives
[...]
<Location /foo/> AAHatName MY_HAT_NAME </Location>

should be

<Location /foo/>
  AAHatName MY_HAT_NAME
</Location>


(I won't object if you fix this yourself, but I'm still interested how
to edit the text.)


BTW: I'd also recommend to reduce the height of the header, especially
on the start page - on 900x1440px laptop screens, the "Current
documents" section is only partially visible without scrolling.

Oh, and while I'm in complain mode: I tried to add my Novell account in
the user preferences / HybridAuth, but this only opens a new window for
some seconds without doing any changes.

Editing appears disabled currently. I also cannot edit anything.
Investigating.

Same for me.

Hmm, with Firefox, it easily fits in a 1340 x 840 window. I can see
''ActiveDoc is...'' below, and 'Recent Changes'' next to the ''Current
documents'' listing.

The window should open for a few seconds, then close. And then the main
window would refresh, to show your user name in the top row.
Again that works fine with Firefox. Time for me to test konqueror, maybe?

It probably depends on the amount of toolbars you have ;-)
In Firefox (with the bookmark "tool"bar and the web developer toolbar -
in other words: not too much), the last thing I see without scrolling
are the "openSUSE 12.3" headlines of the current documents, but not the
titles like "Security Guide".

Yes, maybe ;-)


I just tested in Firefox _without_ logging in before (so basically I
logged in with the Novell account), got a confirmation mail and it
worked.

I then tried to change the username to "cboltz" and got
    The website encountered an unexpected error. Please try again later.

It's not too surprising that this fails (I already use "cboltz" for the
account I have for my mail address), but I'd expect a better error
message, for example
    This username is already used by someone else. Please choose
    a different username.


Another test in Konqueror showed that logging in with the Novell account
is still not working, so you should really start testing Konqueror ;-)

BTW: Regarding Konqueror version - I'm using Factory - but I'm quite
sure you are not surprised about this ,-)

13.1 translations

Tomáš Bažant
Hi!

As openSUSE 13.1 documentation is going to be placed on
activedoc.opensuse.org (and I am in chanrge of its management), we need
to solve the problem with translated versions. Therefore, I would like
translators to tell me more about input document formats they need to do
the translations, maybe even the way they do it. On the contrary, I can
specify in detail how Drupal (the engine behind ActiveDoc) handles
translations. Maybe we can find a solution which is satisfactory for
both sides.

Looking forward to hearing from you!

Here's the way I do Chinese translation for now:

1. svn co the 50-pot/50-tools/en/zh_CN

2. update/extract 50-pot/*.pot from en/xml

3. fill into zh_CN/po

4. make another set of scripts to upload it to transifex.net (We have
a team about 20 people there, now we have finished opensuse-startup
and about 50% opensuse-reference guide, they're in a second stage on
transifex: reviewed solely by me, so it's slow that I didn't package
for 13.1)

5. wait for them to translate, also translate them myself on transifex

6. fetch the translated po

7. convert to zh_CN/xml with 50-tool tools

8. use daps to generate pdf/epub.

9. upload it to anonymous ftp at ftp://forum.suse.org.cn

10. Users download and learn

So for me, the input document format will be po file or xml file.


PS: will translated versions on activedoc.o.o too?

I just can't figure out how it works right now...I guess it's some
kinda social editing, right?

But what if translated version got a modification that different from
the English one ?

Or it's just a new web interface for English document editors, so we
can attract more new editors? (but for a short time, we will still
give translators a place to get _static_ files for translation instead
of dynamically translating on the same web, right?)

Re: 13.1 translations

Tomáš Bažant
Hi Marguerite!

Thank you very much for the description of your translation workflow.
And YES, we plan to have translations on ActiveDoc.
ActiveDoc (Drupal) has it the following way:

* you edit a chapter/section/book page primarily in English with a
WYSIWYG/HTML web editor
* each page can have its translated version, which is also edited the
same way
*  as a result, changing the web language changes the content as well
(if the specified translation is available)
* primary content format for ActiveDoc is (X)HTML

From which follows, that:
* when translating the whole content, it can be done manually directly
in ActiveDOc
* but if you need an external translation service (such as transifex),
we have to exchange the content in some format supported by both
services (drupal and transifex). What is the reason you convert XML to
*.pot files? Is XHTML not sufficient?


Regards

Tomas

How are handled updates? I mean I translated a page into French and English page is updated. Should I check changes manually?

Maintaining translations using POT/PO files is easy. You can reuse translations, see what was updated, etc.

There is a 'diff' available to each drupal node, so that you can compare
any 2 revisions from present to past. You cannot, though, compare 2
different nodes (= 'pages')

Ha, here's the reason I chose to use transifex before:

Reason 0: svn needs permission...and I can't ask for 20 or more
accounts on svn.o.o, which is really dangerous to us and those
accounts can't be managed by me. The curious newbies will screw
everything around. I need some kinda control to maintain the good
feeling of Chinese community in our international "Home", meanwhile I
need a way that everybody can join me.

Reason 1:

Most Chinese do learn English in their school days. But they just
learn it to pass paper tests. They have a strong tradition to see
everything in Chinese. Transifex has a Chinese interface.

Reason2: po file is the format used by transifex and almost all the
projects...it's familiar to them. wiki or social style is just too
hard for someone. I have been advocating such styles for a long long
time to local community...but they just ask for the po files. The new
way sounds like opensuse-community.org/Main_Page and
opensuse-community.org/Main_Page/zh-hans, but I don't wanna end up in
a situation that I myself will be the only translator.

Reason3: If you translate it offline, xhtml can't avoid the syntax
tags...which can be mistranslated into Chinese, later it'll be a real
mess for me or other people who feel responsible to keep it compile.

And you can't diff them all the time just to watch what has been
changed. po file can.

The reason I don't perfer xhtml offline is just because there's no
WYSIWYG translation tool.

The reason why I said "translate offline compability" is because most
of my contributors are from collages. Maybe it's hard for you to
imagine, Chinese university/collage don't have free IPv4 Internet
access. And some of them even have to use Public computers.

So...offline is a must to me...if our community can't provide such
capability...I think we're actually just out-souring this work to
me...then I have to maintain another (the third for me) set of tools
on github...

Greetings

maybe, but definitely not now please. But if konqueror's webkit based,
it should be ok anyway.....try google or fb login (novell login
sometimes troubles even me...)

Re: 13.1 translations

Tomáš Bažant
In reply to this post by Marguerite Su
Hello

I've read you post and now i understand your reasons for liking .po
files and offline access.

There is the possibility to manually convert the existing English pages
from html to pot & po files, and after your team translates them,
recreate the structure back to html with the translated strings and
manually import the pages one by one into Activedoc.

It is quite time-consuming way, but I'm afraid the onle one feasible.

BTW ActiveDoc now contains openSUSE 13.1 set of manuals in English -
with Start-Up Guide also in German - have a look at
http://activedoc.opensuse.org/book/opensuse-131-start-up
and
http://activedoc.opensuse.org/de/book/opensuse-131-start-up

Regards

Tomas
