Re: NaN documentation database + future

Any feedback? Volunteers? Feedback: good proposal. Maybe before actually trying to understand the GNU FDL, you should define what you expect the license to do. For example, do we need the feature of the GNU FDL to define invariant sections? Do you want a copyleft license that prevents the freely av...

Re: BDP

I don't know how I hurt you, but I never meant to be another doc leader! I only wanted to help! Welcome in the club! (And: it wasn't you that hurt me - please have a look at my big failure over at http://alindis.sf.net/ . Especially have a look at the deadline... It is rather like me wanting to pre...

Probably it will be GNU FDL, which is a license protecting copyrighted work (so it's not public domain).

Carsten plans to release something this weekend.

Now that it's open source, wouldn't it be better to have a more 'official', centralised, unified approach to it all? Yes, that's exactly what I agree on: an official project hosted on blender.org and being based on existing work (former NaN docs) is what's inevitably arising anyway. So that's the b...

Re: Documentation 'source'

If not, perhaps it might be an idea to start a project to design and lay out a tutorial/documentation 'template' that could be used in this fashion. I already started a project about setting up a Blender-specific DocBook environment for Windows and Unix (including an incomplete guide to such 'templ...

Re: Blender Documentation Project (BDP) !!!

Of course we should wait until calli gives out some of the internal material from NaN. You're so right. But I just thought, that everyone who is interested in helping with a Blender Documentation should give me a short e-mail, including what you can or want to do! 8) Would you please do some more r...

Lets stop the chaos before it begins. In the conference, Ton decided to first have a platform for discussion (these forums), where needs for later organization can become better apparent. There was not a lot of time to properly (and: completely) organize this whole portal anyway. So for the remaini...

It has been said before, but that isn't the purpose of this site. Blender.org is especially for the developers, read more at http://www.blender3d.com/blenderdotorg.html I never saw a "development-only" website that didn't also include all the necessary information a user would need to start using t...

Hi Derek! First of all, where's all the old BLODO / Community Guide stuff? And did I accidentally misunderstand as spam the email that should have informed me about the new site? Then, I'd like to inform you about my further plans: 1. Waiting for some official NaN documentation (whatever it is - Pyt...

Of course, being GNU-GPL licensed, there is no such obligation, ... I like the idea of this thread, but although most GNU GPL software is gratis, that's not the case for every so licensed piece of code. Nobody seems to have read the license that everybody loves so much. Strange. But maybe in two ye...

Re: 1st Open Source Involvement

Hi all, Welcome! First of all, I wouldn't say that Blender is currently a typical "mainstream" open source project. It is similar to Mozilla and OpenOffice.org in that the code first grew up in a proprietary environment (Netscape and StarOffice) and only later became free. Other important pointers ...

noid: At the conference, I saw (at the coding style roundtable) that the former NaN coding guidelines included indentation using tabs, and each tab stop being 3 spaces wide. Also, there was a restriction that lines be no wider than 80 spaces (expanding a tab to 3 spaces) wide (I would even restrict ...

LOL so they'll give us it 4 free if we pay them to? :D Seriously, this whole Blender-Going-Free-Software was never about it being gratis. Of course, if you are very patient and have the time to wait for a very long time (or maybe forever), then everything you want you can get for free (ie. gratis)....
