Modern thinking about documentation is very different
traditional "installation guide/reference guide" sort of stuff.
Most users don't want to read a user guide from cover to cover these days
- they want help for the task at hand, rather than to try to absorb a
firehose of information all at once from a guide and then to try to apply
it to a live system.
You are not listening.
You are proffering *your* ideas on what *you* believe people *should* be
doing - or what should occur for *you* to find it more convenient for
yourself :-) .
The above was from a FWD post which is telling everyone what the people
at the "receiving end" - "the sharp end of the stick" - are feeling,
thinking, expressing, and wanting.
I have read some parts of the openSUSE "wiki" when looking for
information and I find it to be semi-literate in nature, too small in
print, and "all over the place" when trying to find information. And is
ancient history, not current to what is "now".
(And, of course, now I will be asked to provide examples of what "is
ancient history" - sigh :-( .)
If you want to see what I consider to be most helpful documentation on a
Linux distribution have a look at the ones for Ubuntu:
Both clearly set-out, in easy to read font.
A civilisation is judged by how it treats the most vulnerable.
