Re: Place to put bug genie documentation.

If WPD: is there once, after wiki/, why would you need to repeat it? Thanks. J

Well the WPD: thing is kind of important as it separates the "meta" documentation from the content proper. So, we would move WPD:Projects to WPD:Project_Management/Projects. I was using the extant file names (like WPD:Projects and WPD:Filing_Bugs) to show the existing pages.

*** Getting Started
** Project Mangement
*** Filing an issue
*** Voting on issues
*** Editing an issues attributes
** Design

With each lower level in the list simply being a sub-folder ( / separator, we don't really use folders but that is the only thing I can think to call it.) Doing WPD: so much just gets very repetitive very quickly, and wouldn't even work doing WPD:Project_Management/WPD:Projects.

Yes, I think that makes sense. Like this?:


Then we need to revise the top-level nav, swaping "Editing" for "Contributing," and we'll need to write our Main_Page and anywhere else where we talk about contributing.

Am I forgetting anything?

We really need an entire section of the wiki dedicated to these docs. Doing it under another section such as the editors guide can get rough if things move around in the future.

Although, seeing this and doing some thinking I think we actually need to move the Editors Guide around... What would probably make more sense is a "Contributor's Guide" then have "Editing", "Design/Skin", "Project Management", etc. as sub-sections of that. This way anyone wanting to contribute in any way can go to one place to get the information they need. Then under the PM section we could place the instructions on doing different front-end tasks related to TBG.

Does a restructure like that seem reasonable to anyone else?

So, today I am finishing up the new Filing Bugs tutorial [1] with pictures and all to hopefully make filing someones first issue more clear. I plan on currently just tweaking the current page to hold that content. Something we need to figure out though is where to place the other Bug Genie documentation that is being done. I originally thought to place it under WPD:TBG and have sub-pages from there on different usage tasks, but I feel "TBG" doesn't make much sense unless you know what it is.

Does anyone have any thoughts on where we should put the docs? Do remember that there will really be two views in the documentation, one for front-end usage and one for administrating the system.
