Debian Help Facility
I am a GNU/Linux newbie and have been having trouble finding answers to
simple questions. For example, I wanted to figure out how to view html
pages. I looked in /usr/doc/HTML. I tried "man html" and "help html". I
want to figure out how to answer my own questions but I keep wandering
around and, undoubtedly, missing the obvious..
First, let me step back and ask a more general question. Let's say that
nothing really exists on the topic and I am willing to research the topic
and writeup my findings and submit them into the Debian documentation set.
Where would such general information topics belong? help, man, /usr/doc, ????
What would be my process for contacting the right person so that I can
contribute some newbie documents on general topics? Is there a Debian
Documentation Development team that I can join? Is there a Debian
Documentation Quality Assurance team that reviews these documents prior to
being officially published?
Is there some documentation Search Engine that I have overlooked?
And, the most basic question of all, where do I find the document that
describes all the different documentation facilities and development
infrastructure that exists? Is there some one Documentation README.1st
that I have simply missed?
Thank you for any guidance you might provide.
