Let's get ready to rumble and review...

Christoph Derndorfer
Hi,

with day 4 of our 5-day Documentation sprint now being well underway and me leaving Boston for NYC in just under 30 hours I thought I should provide a quick update and rally people to help with reviewing what's been written so far.

Overall I think it's fair to say that we've made quite a lot of progress though as ever so often some last minute hurdles and distractions have kept us from being as far along as I had personally hoped we would be at this point. :-)

In any case, we currently have 12 chapters which have been marked as being ready for [R]eview on http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Help_Activity_refresh/TOC. As such it would be great and much appreciated if people here would help us with reviewing them. Aside of focusing on the content itself it would be helpful if people could also keep the style guide available on http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_SanFranciscoBayArea/OLPCSF_Community_Summit_2011/Help_Activity_Refresh#Style_Guide in mind. However as Caryl put in another e-mail earlier today: "It is a suggestion/guideline, not a straightjacket, so if you need to do things a little differently, go ahead."

As for feedback I would suggest that reviewers put their comments on the respective discussion-/talk-pages ("Discussion" tab on top of each page) *and* e-mail the respective authors. Please also copy myself on any e-mails you send out so I can try to keep track of what's happening (though my sanity might suffer a bit in the process;-).

Please also feel free to ping me via e-mail, on IRC (christophd on #olpc-help) or Skype (my nickname is "theeaglecd") if you have any further comments, questions, suggestions, critique, etc.

Thanks in advance for your support,
Christoph

I wasn't planning on ritin' in the documentation sprint, but I noticed
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Help_Activity_refresh/Chapter/Launching_Activities
was barebones compared with the TamTam chapter's section "Starting
TamTam Mini". So I got the former to a reviewable state, I guess.

The main change is the default resume behavior with the ability to
resume other journal entries and start new.  I have no XO friends :-)
, so I couldn't test or take screenshots of "Join a shared Activity
from the Neighborhood View" and "Accept an invitation by clicking the
invitation icon on the Frame."  I simply linked to the images in the
http://laptop.org/8.2.0/manual/

Edit away, or e-mail me, or talk.

I have some questions and suggestions that I'll sometime send
separately. I'm  aware how small my contribution is compared to my
mouth, it's like the school janitor opining on how teachers should be
teaching.

Cheers,
