First off, its good to see users helping users on the wiki. I have a
suggestion when it comes to component documentation, however, which is
that we update the documentation on the website.
We are in desperate need of help in that department. Here is how you
can help. Checkout the latest source code from subversion. Update
the xdocs used to build the website (they are located in
source/documentation/content/xdocs/components.) Use the
component-template.xml as a basis for the new documentation. Note
there are already place holder pages for the components but the
template has changed slightly so make sure it conforms to
component-template.xml when you modify it.
Important: run the pages through Apache Forrest and proofread them.
Most likely you will get some complaints from forrest about your XML
until you get the hang of things. You just need to download
ApacheForrest, set up FORREST_HOME in your path and type 'forrest' in
the build dir.
Once everything looks good generate a svn-patch. Please create the
patch from the top level of the project. Also, please make sure the
patch does not contain your other local changes unrelated to the
documentation. Submit the patch and any brand new files (most likely
images for the screenshots) to the dev list and a committer will apply
Screenshots are needed for almost all of the components. Try to use
one from the simple examples to make it consistent with what the user
will see if they download the simple examples.
