Tom has put it on the wiki, but as it needs work, I thought adding it to
Alfresco would be good. I am writing a note to the list seeking someone
to tidy up the English and make any other needed changes.

I just downloaded and had a brief look at the two files.

Installing_extensions_08-11-2011.odt would seem like content to
replace the extensions coverage in 0109GS3-SettingUpAndCustomizing.odt
of the GS guide

Publishing_extensions_08112011.odt would indeed seem to fit in the
DevGuide area, but I suspect it's still a work in progress, because
I'm not sure that is yet at a
mature state, and I don't know if Andreas and Gustavo will maintain
the material we keep on Alfresco.

I can put Publishing_extensions_08112011.odt on my list of
longer-range to-do's, after the Power User guide, for proofreading and
correction, once the work on Alfresco is much more advanced.

@Gustavo, @Andreas: any comments?

I had missed "Installing extensions" and only saw "Publishing
extensions". I have now looked at "Installing extensions" and see that
it is indeed a how-to based on the Getting Started guide chapter on
Customizing. It needs only a bit of tidying up, including the info on
the copyright page.

Your comment on "Publishing extensions" suggests that removing the
pointer to the file from the Docs wiki (where Tom had put it) might be
best at this point.

BTW, if I were editing "Publishing extensions" I would crop the
screenshots to take off the browser's title bar, menu bar, and address
bar. They aren't relevant to what's going on, and removing them
(especially the address bar) will make the images relevant for longer --
at least until the web page itself is redesigned.

However, at this point cropping the existing images may not be worth the
effort, because the web page probably will change. So my comment applies
more to someone capturing replacement images when the time comes.

This looks like a document that anyone with good English skills could
usefully edit. I think it's a good project for someone wanting to get
involved here without a big commitment, yet it's more interesting and
more work than the minor tidying up that most of our existing user guide
material needs. It could be a good "before and after" example for
someone to add to their portfolio. Anyone interested?
