Wish list for user documentation
User guides, tutorials, etc.
Guides and tutorials on topics aimed at intermediate and advanced users:
- A collection of examples for LibreOffice Math (e.g. markup language for a 4x4-matrix with placeholders, spread over multiple lines)
- Here is a first draft - comments welcome.
- Styles and templates in Writer
- Using XForms in LibreOffice - Could be based on J David Eisenberg's 2006 paper, XForms and OpenDocument in OpenOffice.org, which we have permission to use as we see fit. More info is in Valden Longhurst's 2009 paper, Using XForms and the OpenDocument format in OpenOffice.org and StarOffice, but we may not be able to copy from that one.
Documents aimed at specific audiences, e.g. technical writers, small business, university students:
- Guide for technical writers
- Using Assistive Technologies With LibreOffice
- Update and adapt the OpenOffice.org 2.0 migration guide for LibreOffice
Update old OpenOffice.org user guides for the current version of LibreOffice:
- Migration Guide - Update and adapt the OpenOffice.org 2.0 migration guide for LibreOffice
- Administrators' Guide - Could be based on the OpenOffice.org Admin Guide.
- Basic Programmers' Guide - Could be based on the OpenOffice.org BASIC Programmers' Guide.
- Developers' Guide - Could be based on the OpenOffice.org Developers' Guide.
- Make user guides available in other formats
- wiki format -- in progress
- ePub format -- see EPUB
- Finish the English version of the FAQs
- Re-organize the Documentation wiki-pages structure
For Doc Team
- A library of material to be used in more than one document. For example, some info on setup, customization, printing, and PDF export is used in guides for several components.
- Training materials (may be done through another group in LibreOffice community?)
Wish List for Developer Documentation
- Packaging (.deb, .rpm, .dmg, .pisi,...)
- UNO/LibreOffice Object Model (objects, methods, properties) would help macro and LibreOffice developers alike.
- A few diagrams of the object model hierarchy would help newcomers get started faster.
- Developer level workflow including git, running soffice with the debugger and when to build all/modules. Developer FAQs for different phases of development. (These probably belong in Development section).
