Hi folks, two weeks back there were a flurry of posts about an Evergreen
documentation project plan. I will plan a webinar for a conversation about
this proposal, but if you have thoughts to share on or off the list, your
input would be very welcome. Input could range from "Yes, that's a good idea
-- carry on" to "I suggest X about Y" to "This is the most ghastly proposal
I have seen in my X years working in libraries."

This is the proposal:


Note that there are any kind of top-level decisions to be made, with
corollary activity that follows, and it's not even a given we call the
documentation The Book of Evergreen (especially if it turns out to be in
volumes...). That has been its working title, and in the absence of better
ideas, etc. etc., but a discussion about the title would also be timely.

Also, Betty Ing, a documentation intern at Project Conifer, has published a
comparison of Style Guidelines for Fedora and Book of Evergreen. For those
who missed her post (to the documentation list) I published her cross-walk


This crosswalk reinforces the suggestions in the proposal.

We've seen some excellent documentation emerging from various parts of the
Evergreen community, and channeling it into an intentional project
integrated with larger Evergreen efforts would be excellent.
