Manuals standardisation

Hi! I'm one of the wiki maintainers here. I have recently started an effort to standardise manuals on this wiki - see for my posts to the documentation mailing list. I'm planning to create some standards for writing manuals which would become part of the Openmoko Wiki Editing Guidelines. For the SHR manual implementing those standards would mean that some parts of the section "Installation" would be moved to individual device-manuals. Furthermore this manual would probably be moved to a page like Manuals/SHR. What do you think about this? I'd appreciate any comments from you. --Marko Knöbl 21:55, 24 July 2009 (UTC)

I am ok with this but let the draft develop here as part of the cofundus project till August 31st --Rakshat 09:18, 27 July 2009 (UTC)

Hi, i am the writer of this page. I have previously already moved the page to Manuals/SHR but i can see that you moved it back. I don't really care about the location as the wiki is only part of the release. --Vanous 09:10, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Work in progress

Started adding screenshots and texts. At this point, i don't care about formatting at all. --Vanous 09:41, 29 July 2009 (UTC)

Formatted already. Typo corrections welcomed --Vanous 10:57, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

Added SHR Settings screenshots, need to be formatted --Vanous 13:09, 31 July 2009 (UTC)

The Car Navigation system (Navit) section may be better lower down the Manual, in the application section. --Rakshat 18:27, 8 August 2009 (UTC)

hihi, didn't read your comment but moved it already :))) will move it even further after things get a bit clearer here :) --Vanous 09:37, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

Vanous's note not to forget this:

settings for /etc/phone-utils.conf. I know this file has to do with making sure that the phone can resolve both an international phone number and a normal phone number to the correct contact (i.e. incoming calls/messages for +31612345*** and 0612345*** will both be recognised as coming from one contact).

More info (although the configuration file has moved since then): --Vanous 09:37, 9 August 2009 (UTC)

The Navit section will need to be reviewed as SHR-u provides navit (older version i think). For now it's good though.

Table of contents

I think that the toc should be on the left for consistency. right alignment is good for rtl language (not english or other western languages) Dareus

I'd also prefer having the toc on the left side - but I'd rather have the text below it, not floating around it as it was after your edit. --Marko Knöbl 18:23, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
I would like to get all the subpoints into sections and this will make the content quite long. I haven't found yet how to make the content smaller (limit levels). this will make the content huge, this is why i would like to keep it besides. i am more inclined towards the right side ans it feels more natural, but of here is a consistency issue, we can go left, but at this point floating, please, thank you --Vanous 22:48, 10 August 2009 (UTC)
OK, I see what you mean now. I think it's alright to leave floating on the right side. --Marko Knöbl 09:25, 13 August 2009 (UTC)
