The idea is about an easy way to allow users to make upgrades (e.g.: changing from one major version like 15.0 to version 15.1) using a GUI and as easy as they can in Ubuntu.
Something like a notification with a button to perform the upgrade with just one-click, instead of having to deal with the terminal, that frights some new users and gives them the sensation of an outdated system.
My German reading and speaking skills suck. I've forgotten everything except "Mehr Bier, bitte". A week of intensive immersion ought to enable me to order food as well. And converse with my German team members. Especially when we go out for meals and drinks.
This should have a concrete goal, so I will write a short story in German to demonstrate my amazing new fluency*.
In this hack week we want to focus on improving the existing components used for http://docsearch.nue.suse.com. Creating separated repositories for each service and pushing them to github.com is also desired.
We also want to create the theoretical foundation for categorizing text to improve the search results.
DAPS, the "DocBook Authoring and Publishing Suite" provides a tool set for easy creation and publication of DocBook sources on Linux. DAPS lets you create HTML (incl. webhelp), PDF, EPUB, man pages, and other formats with a single command. DAPS is used and developed by the SUSE documentation team and hosted on https://opensuse.github.io/daps/ .
Currently DAPS supports building documentation from DocBook 4 and 5 sources. The goal of this project is to add support for ASCIIDOC to DAPS. This will allow to easily create all output formats mentioned above with the official SUSE brand from ASCIIDOC without having to take care about templates and other stuff.
Hackweek is a place for fun and things and also great things and a lot of fun. Some things don't require a reason - they are fun, that's all to it. Here goes a small competition with a lot of fun to it.
Find Klaas in the office.
The Doc team decided to collect remainders of foreign currencies to donate them to a 3rd world project.
There is a box in the Documentation office on 1st floor AND in the All Hands Area where you can drop coins, bills or whatever currency you have left over from your last holiday trip that you don't need anymore.
