Re: [opensuse-project] openSUSE documentation

Yes but at the same time the wiki does not lend itself to producing
professional looking printed documents.

who cares of printing documents nowadays!! print a page to pdf and store it in a cloud...

Our initial discussions started around the idea of creating an "openSUSE
Knowledge Base"

but there is already one, part of the wiki is (was?) well organized as SDB:

The work on the wiki *stopped* when it was decided to use mandatory organization some years ago.

We *need* data. We have many users that are even frightened by writing free form page (I mean really free form, that is only add two CR between paragraphs and no more). don't get them out.

I advocated then the fact that the documentation team main work should be to give a form to free form pages, that is lurk a new pages and add all the setup necessary. I was not heard. Bingo. I don't care, but I guess I was right, the (always small) wiki team did a very hard work to normalize the wiki, then couldn't cope

one have to understand Google is much better to find info than any organization you can do.

That said any initiative is good to take and people that work is the best entitled to choose how :-)
