Hi all,

the documentation for LibreOffice and OOo is currently created via wiki and the site (a Plone CMS with a workflow). The finished documentations were
currently published on, the wiki and on the OOo-Website.

I wonder, in which way we want to create documentation (howto, books etc.) for
LibreOffice. Should we do that on the wiki or should we set up a framework (a CMS
with a special workflow) at one of our resources.

If we want to use a CMS, we had to decide, if we want to use Plone, which some of the
documentation-contributors already know, or another CMS (Drupal, Alfresco etc.). I
don't know at the moment, if the letter ones fullfill all of the needs of the
contributors for documentation, because i only worked with Plone.

I raise this topic on this list, because i want to discuss only the technical aspects
first. If there is no need to think about another framework / CMS, because all needed
features are available, then a discussion of this topic on the documentation list is

I want only to know, if a CMS is projected for this topic and if it is planed about
the available (or intended) features of that CMS. But i don't want to create a new
CMS-war or something else ;-)

May be we could discuss the needs on the documentation list, come back
here with some details and see where they fit in the CMS discussion
happening here. In my dreams, I would like to be able to use my
translation tools (and my translation memory) to deal with the
documentation, but may be this is not true for the other teams. Would
you like to open this discussion on the documentation list?

Kind regards
