Description Karsten Wade 2006-01-31 22:27:35 EST
We would like to have every man and info page for each release of Fedora Core
and Extras to be available via a simple Web interface,

One option would be a directory full of formatted ASCII files.  Another would be
a simple search interface or contents listing, with the directory on the back-end.

One objective is to be able to browse manual pages of various releases.

Another goal is to have permanent URIs for documentation and reference.

Having a simple Web-based diff tool to see what was added/subtracted across
versions would be cool too.

This could be a relative or a tie-in to DocsRawhide.  The man and info pages for
Fedora rawhide could be made available through this method.

In the future, I'd like to see this format extended to allow a Wiki-like ability
to edit the man pages directly.

Would this be possible to implement?

Shoot.  I wish I had remembered this bug when looking for Summer of Code 
ideas.  I've added this to the FedoraBounties page.  It's more likely to get 
attention there.

Hey, I'm just cleaning up old Infrastructure bugs in bugzilla.  If this would still be a useful task, can you close this and file a ticket at https://fedorahosted.org/fedora-infrastructure/ (login with your FAS credentails).

This idea can be considered dead on the vine after this many years. Doing this task is trivial, but no one cares enough to do it? CLOSED
