Re: [Gnewsense-dev] Documentation

Personally, I've always felt something as large as an OS should be well documented
and some approach to _not_ assuming the user knows everything, much as SUSE
and Red Hat document their GNU/Linux systems.  Additionally, I like how the Debian
documentation is put together (non-wiki) and install-able via apt-get in various formats.
That leads me to believe something like Texinfo would be a good starting point for an
overall gNewSense documentation set; an original and unique set from the wiki, but
both something that informs the wiki and is informed by the wiki.

I've created some new documentation about packaging [1]. We already have
[2] and [3], but I felt that this deserved its own section and that it
would be clearer to split the tutorials for new and modified packages.
On my todo list is the non-native package section, trimming the new
package page and improving the FSDG package page.

So far we've used nesting to group pages, but that limits pages to one
group. I'm experimenting with categories for these pages. I see
both techiques used in the Debian wiki [4], but I haven't found a
method to that madness, though I don't have much difficulty finding
information there. Maybe it Just Works organically. Opinions?
