Hi folks, I started a new repository, debian/xsf-docs.git, to hold some documentation. I picked the markdown (*.mdwn) language, since it's what I use in ikiwiki for blogging, and I didn't find major drawbacks until now. I wrote a tiny Makefile and a tiny shell wrapper to generate html, “make html” does that. It's also possible to generate pdf files, using the wbhtmltopdf tool (based on webkit), that's done using “make pdf”. “make” or “make all” run both. I've cloned it in pkg-xorg's htdocs on alioth, and set up a crontab: | PATH=/usr/bin:/bin | MAILTO="" | XSF_DOCS=/home/groups/pkg-xorg/htdocs/xsf-docs | 0 * * * * cd $XSF_DOCS && git pull --rebase && make html (IOW: a refresh happens every hour.) That leads to: http://pkg-xorg.alioth.debian.org/xsf-docs/ I'll be trying to migrate appropriate stuff from the wiki to there, in an attempt to lower wiki entropy. Of course, you're welcome to contribute, either by pushing updates or by sending patches! I'm not sure it warrants its own source/binary package, but at any rate, it's probably a good idea to ship it to users, recommending whatever binary it's going to belong to from another package people are very likely to have installed. Mraw, KiBi.
