Re: Documentation

I've volunteered to help out with non-source documentation but I have a few questions: Is ReST more of a general concept, or is it an actual language? If it's an actual language, is this the correct reference I should be using? Do we have any references for how to go about authoring documentation? D...

More documentation

Hi all, I thought it was about time I start helping out with something, but I think I have too little coding experience to be of much help documenting the source code. It sounds like DavidD is hopefully getting around to that, so I'm willing to help out with pretty much everything else. I've already...

Re: The new release process

4. Release Phase II This is the last signal for the release process. The release date is set to exactly 14 days after the appropriate announcement of this phase. This way, people know when the release is to be expected, and the release team knows when their work has to be done. We could as well cre...

Editing the Wiki

So FYI to people who want to edit the wiki but don't know how, just follow the directions on the last line here . Not sure why it took me so long to find how to do, but figured it might help someone. Perhaps you can add that to your stickie Atahualpa since this is likely to be a thread visited by pe...

Re: 1.0 roundtable

No, we mean both. Documentation is a broad term that covers everything from user manuals, to tutorials to source documentation. Oh great! I was actually about to offer to help with documentation until I realized you probably meant source documentation, which I don't think I'd be much help in. But i...

Re: The new release process

Thanks for this, it was actually very clarifying as to how the process works for those of us who don't know the inner workings very well. I'm excited to see how the new process plays out. It's also probably worth it to spend the extra effort now to get things up and running so by the time we get to ...

Re: Release process changes

I think most of this has been discussed into oblivion at this point, but I think I'm not understanding exactly the purpose of the RC phase. RCs need to either be kept private, or release packages need to be independent of the project release. Why? This is why: I also downloaded the Win 64-bit RC and...

Re: 1.0 roundtable

I'm somewhat worried about the suggestion to make filling in bug reports easier. I think it would be nice to have an easier way of filling out the report, but unless it's carefully designed, we may just end up with a lot of pointless complaints lacking enough information for devs to actually find th...

Re: Release process changes

So I've been lurking for the last couple of months but I can attest to the confusing nature of our releases. Apart from 0.40 taking a long time in general (fine, we all know this is volunteer), I stopped following the release thread because there were so many different discussions happening all at o...

Re: How to make GUI bigger?

I think I may be running into the same problem as BadWolf. I'm pretty sure I followed the instructions carefully and I double checked, but you never know. For me, it looks like the font is still being handled as a raster rather than a vector. For me everything looks fine at normal GUI size, but whe...
