Is it by some way possible to achieve the Docbook files for the new blender manual?

Chapters 1 to 7 are on the CVS right now

I'm going at 1 chapter/day rate :P

Nice, thanks. I checked the CVS yesterday and downloaded it all but my docbook installation could not compile because of missing files.

How many chapters does it have?

S68 has been doing a fabulous job of getting the materials online. I've been working on creating both PDF and HTML output based on his progress. I'm very close. I just have some graphics linking issues to resolve. Once I'm successful, I'll post a URL to where the documents can be downloaded. I plan to continually update the doc as S68 adds chapters until the entire doc is back online. At that point my stuff won't be needed any longer.

Where in cvs are the doc chapters?

I gotta echo phrentec on this. Are the chapters in bf-blender or in some other repository? When I look at this page:

http://projects.blender.org/viewcvs/vie ... bf-blender

I only see the blender and lib modules, and I can't find any files in those cvs modules named chap*.* or any XML files that look like document chapters.

I'd actually like to submit some changes/corrections to the "Quickstart" chapter, but I need to know where the files are first... :) Stefano, do I submit these changes to you? Thanks for all your work.

They are in the docboard repository (see projects homepage for all projects hosted here).

Thank you, jesterKing.

A quick question - what do people use for editing the XML chapter files? YFTE (Your Favorite Text Editor)? Or is there some recommended tool?

Thanks,
Chris Keith

Thanks, phrentec. I hunted around and found it, and have the doc source currently on my system. Now I'm trying to figure out where to download docbook2html/jw/etc. so I can verify that I don't break anything when I do edit it. If I have any more questions I'll certainly ask, but I'm trying to figure it out myself before bugging anyone else. :)
