Project: restructure and update the documentations
to all readers
a project has been started to restructure and update the documentation. We like to keep everything up and running while we work on that, but sometimes parts may be missing, links might not work etc. Today (mid April 2010) the plan shows a 3 month time frame for getting everything finished.
Please use the "discussion" page (just press the tab on the top of each of the wiki pages), then "edit" to let us know about problems with a page. Thank you. You need to be a registered user at the Wiki to be able to do that.
If it is urgent or very disturbing also go to the Forum and add a hint by "post-reply" to this Topic . We will work on those problems with priority. You need to be a registered user at the Forum to be able to do that.
Thank you for your support and your patience.
to all writers and translators
Please read the hints at Writer Documentation.
