Hi :)
I thought it was on the wiki too.  I haven't explored much.

I've now added my proposals for both GS and WG to the wiki:

Ch1 seems to be a merging and of the current CH1&2 into a more logical order?  

No, current Ch2 was moved to end of book.

I think the Math chapter has been absorbed into other chapters.  

No, Math chapter is proposed for removal because we have the Math Guide.

Base and Macros 
removed.  But there is a lot more in the detail so i think it's better if i have 
a closer look later before discussing it in the list. 

Good idea. ;-)
Also comparing it to the existing ToC makes it easier to see what's
removed and what is rearranged.


I liked the  flow of the proposed Ch1
Regards from
Tom :)

I thought the GS Guide was going to keep a chapter on Macros but a separate 

was going to appear later to expand on that.  Just like Writer and the apps 

their own books but also have a chapter in the GS Guide?  I think there already 

is an excellent guide written by Andrew and i would like us to link to it while 

making it clear that it is a third party book rather than one produced by the 
docs team here.

Yes, a link to Andrew's book should definitely be added. It was in the
OOo GS book (in Chapter 1, where other sources of info are listed under
"How to Get Help"), but apparently it was removed at some point from the
LibO GS chapter before publication.

As for whether to retain the Macros chapter in GS, most people who spoke
up said they wanted it kept there, so I guess we're keeping it. 

I still haven't looked at the re-organising that Jean has suggested but i 
suspect that the re-organising would be a good thing to do.  There are probably 

tiny inconsequential issues that i might end-up arguing about until i look at 
those issues in-depth.  What do other people think of the propsed changes?  Is 

there an easy link to a list of  proposals?

I thought I had put it on the LibO wiki, but I can't find it. I'll add
it to the wiki when I have time, but meanwhile you can read the OOo
version here (I had made the same proposal to both groups):
