Forum OpenACS Development: Response to Schedule
We've got some progress on the documentation front, especially in regard to outlining the tasks that are critical for a first release. I haven't talked to Roberto yet about details but I've been insisting for some time that the biggest barrier to a beta release is the lack of good, integrated installation documentation and the like (various files uploaded to openacs.org don't count).
We can now create HTML files from the original aD XML files (even I can do that following Roberto's instructions, which were based on aD's original howto). Vinod has provided us tempates for them which use our OpenACS logo rather than the aD logo. Roberto's working through the documentation removing aD references from their .xml sources.
Etc etc etc. Much has happened to make this last barrier look more like a speedbump and less like a roadblock.
But I'm not interested in providing more hand-waving dates until Roberto's ready to commit to some dates, which means getting a few more documentation volunteers.
We could use folks to help in simple ways, i.e. editing for English, spelling and other non-technical issues ...
