TRANSLATIONS

I updated few application translations (like urpmi, rpmdrake, drakx-net and so on) and I translated a blog post.

DOCUMENTATION

I’m in charge to package the official Mageia documentation built by the Doc Team and to set up the svn repository used to version it.

After the setup of the common svn solution (i.e. branches, tags and trunk) I imported the Mageia Control Center documentation built by the Documentation Team using Calenco and then two utilities I wrote to help me, as well as other packagers, keeping the documentation up-to-date and packaging it.

The repository looks like this

trunk/
|-build-pkg/
|-mcc/
|-update-doc/

where build-pkg and update-doc contain

build-pkg:
build-archive.sh*  COPYING

update-doc:
COPYING  update-doc.sh*

The build-archive script automates the creation of a new tag and then the creation of the documentation source tarball used by the rpm package mageia-doc.

The update-doc script automates instead the procedure of keeping up-to-date the documentation of the Mageia Control Center retrieving the Calenco zipped archives directly from the upstream website. This script also apply some specific patches to the documentation.

Their full documentation will be added to the official mageia wiki as soon as I can so be patient, please ๐Ÿ™‚

MAGEIAONLINE
