As long as DocBook XML allows for the following, I'm all in favour of it: 1) precision placement of design elements (like you get with the HTML DIV tag) 2) layering of elements Without that kind of flexibility, the graphic design is going to be severely limited. I'm assuming that since we're talkin...

If you wished to strengthen your point you could set up a small wiki environment (or something similar) where people could *see* how easy it can be to churn out DocBook documentation. I never said it was easy to set up, but only (but maybe I've forgot that) that it would be easy to use once set up....

Hi Derek! The GNU FDL, well, I didn't mind parts of it, but some, I just didn't think applied for what I want. (Mainly the part about selling printed copies) The GNU licenses are made to implement the freedoms that Free Software (and, recently, also free documentation) should grant you to be called ...

"Oops, my bad docbook is crap, we will use ......... instead" Look, the best point I can make is that I saw most of the things I proposed implemented elsewhere, and figured the rest won't be too difficult (or just might have slipped my attention). You can make HTML from it, you can make PDF files f...

Btw.: DocBook is a file format, not a program. I could have made that point clearer.

Re: Documentation Help

Hi all, Hi Ron! That was actually exactly the way people should promote themselves into any moderatoring boards here - by saying what they can do and then, to prove that they know what they're talking of, giving an opinion about it. Well done! But that doesn't mean I automatically also agree with y...

***FLAME ME*** Very strange request indeed. :D POD My proposal Core source format: DocBook XML. Editing formats: DocBook XML (and SGML, if possible, through conversion), a subset of HTML, a subset of LaTeX, a Wiki-like language, and maybe a few others (Texinfo subset? OpenOffice.org? (very hot idea...

I'm not sure what DocBook is like, but I voted for it because out of the choices, it sounds like it's something that can be downloaded. So my responce is, it would be great if it were downloadable and viewable on my local computer. That's what I'd like. You should have voted for HTML then, I'm afra...

I THINK THAT WOULD BE A NO I can use CVS but you are goin to restrict a lot of people out there, and the documentation is too important to do that. Everybody's talking about "CVS access". To be blunt, there's no "just access" at all - you have either read-only access ( everybody has this one!) or r...

At least that was planned. (See http://www.blender3d.org/blenderdotorg.html .) Currently, it also is goal 2 (see home page of blender.org at the right-hand side). But since setting up everything is a lot of work, these forums are here to discuss and to get your desires heard about what should be don...

Re: swig

As has Ton pointed out, though, this customizability of the interface is a double-edged sword: if you can totally customize your interface, then this also means that there is no "standard Blender interface". You lose standardization of the GUI, meaning that documentation, tutorials, etc become more...
