Revision as of 13:40, 5 October 2007

We need to work now on an update of this Manual and have a specific version for Inkscape.

  • Queries about Manual can be added here or sent to <cedric@le-radar.com>

Work in progress

User Manual Work in Progress reflects current work on the guide.

Translations of the manual

Getting the latest version

  svn co https://inkscape.svn.sourceforge.net/svnroot/inkscape/user_manual/trunk user_manual

How to Help

  • Subscribe to the inkscape-docs mailing list and tell us what you are planning to do so that no work is duplicated
  • Adding new information to the manual: write your files in docbook or in plain text that we'll convert (please follow the User Manual Guidelines)
  • translating pages
  • contact a contributor or add your name in the list below and have a look at the User Manual Work in Progress
  • To view the current state in HTML, type "make fr" or "make en" (xsltproc is needed). See the Makefile for other targets.
  • For pictures, you may use the "images/sshot_yourlanguage" directory or create it if necessary".
  • Don't translate anything yet, we are working on the French Version, which will then be translated into English, and that will become the basis for translation work. You will get a PO file for translating later.
