Re: [Xen-devel] Xen document day (Oct 12 or 26)

Looks like me being maxed out means we are too close to Oct 12th now. Does anybody object to doing this on the 26th?

How long will the day be? An afternoon? A whole day with rolling time-zones?

In a nutshell:
- We should focus on some of the shortfalls we identified at the Hackathon
  (CLI guides, man pages, etc.)?
- We should also do a quick Wiki sanity check (i.e. identify important pages, which are wrong)
  I can help guide this

Maybe we can split into two groups

Please do a pool. I posted two dates, but other ones could work as well.

We should publish on the blog a bit before.
Also, how can I help?

I don't think we can do _all_ of them. Can you help us determine what

    Some more related pages:

    Also there's something completely new that we should document:
    How to install Xen VMs! which means document all the relevant methods:
    boot the native distro installer as PV guest, as HVM guest,
    xen-tools, virt-install,
    debootstrap, rpmstart, etc..

    That's something people ask about very often..


After working through a bunch of the pages I think we are going to
have to have a realtime collab session to decide on some way of
reorganising everything into categories.
