Documentation Interest Group meeting, in person.
April 7, 2017: 8:00 AM EST
Approximately 15 people attended.
Kathy Lussier led the meeting, assisted by Jeanette Lundgren.
We all introduced ourselves. A few participants are not using Evergreen yet, but expect their library will migrate in the near future.
Kathy explained a bit about the Docs Interest Group regarding regular monthly meetings on IRC, many ways to get involved (large and small). She also mentioned that we are looking for a new DIG Facilitator, who mostly organizes the meetings and posts a blank agenda for members to add items. They don't need to be familiar with AsciiDoc.
Everyone agreed that we miss Yamil (our former facilitator), who has stepped down to focus on other work.
Kathy showed how to find a doc bug on launchpad, opened the html docs page in question, found the file on GitHub, but was not able to edit the file because of uncooperative internet connection at the conference hotel.
Kathy showed the main DIG links on the main evergreen website
Kathy gave a handout which included:
Kathy demonstrated the IRC web gateway
One highlight of the meeting was when someone complained that we aren't able to easily borrow Sitka docs because they write in DocBook, which we can't easily convert to AsciiDoc….. then minutes later Dan Scott announced that he found a way to convert them to AsciiDoc using pandoc.
