Updates from Content Coordinators

Robert Soulliere (DocBook Style) Added docs for customizing the OPAC/TPAC into 2.2 from Dan Scott's guide at Converted and merged Booking module documentation. Also merged Booking into other documentation versions to match 1.6. as reviewed by Tim Spindler and his team. Booking was reviewed by Mike Peters at Evergreen Indiana Serials documentation was merged from 2.0 to 2.1 as reviewed by Tim Spindler. See commit: Not migrated alternate seriald display chapter (chapter 5 in 2.0) based on discussions to merge with chapter 4 alternate display docs with the tutorial. Please review and update the 2.2 outline as needed:

Kathy Lussier (OPAC / Staff Tasks) All the new end-user content has been the docs that have been moved up Still plugging away at updating circ docs. Call for volunteers to look at cataloging and OPAC, but still haven't gotten any bites. Cataloging will need some work, but maybe OPAC just needs to be reviewed to see if it can be moved up to 2.1.

Jenny Turner (Reports) February Reports Group meeting was canceled due to low attendance. Only very brief updates from the folks looking at documentation. Next reports meeting on Monday 3/5

Yamil Suarez and Tim Spindler (DIG Releases) No updates

June Rayner (Administration / Development) Working on 2.1 System admin docs. Completed 14 of 18 sections in the System Admin outline. Still need documentation on rules - circulation duration, recurring fine, max fine, and age hold protect rules. Will contact general and devs lists to ask if anyone has any documents out there that can be used.

Old Business

1a) Plan DIG Hackfest - Create a List of Hackfest Goals

Kathy Lussier: created a page where people can add ideas for docs that need to be done at the hackfest.

Asciidoc overview might be useful at the start of the hackfest. Many people may not have had a chance to look at it.

Dan Scott: SITKA's patron opt-in info could be added to the docs. Licensing is cc-by-sa 3.0 See and Sitka docs at Possibly a live example for an ASCIIdoc demo.

James Fournie: Sitka's docs are in docbook format in git repos here:

Kathy Lussier: Planning to flesh out the OPAC and end user docs part of the Version 2.2 outline. If anyone has anything that they think is missing from the docs or needs some work, please feel free to add it to the wiki.

1b) Find DIG member to welcome and introduce DIG to newcomers

Yamil Suarez: Planning to work on docs all day and have the DIG meeting at the allotted time. Can help provide an introduction to DIG to newbies. Jenny Turner: Many newbies at the last hackfest that needed introduction to DIG in general
