Wiki Authoring Guidelines
This document provides general guidelines for ERP5 Wiki authors. Please read it carefully to help us make this site consistent and usable.
Your contribution is welcome. The most useful contributions are:
HowTo documents in which one describes a consistent process to use, configure or develop with ERP5. This process must be repeatable by other users.
TechnicalNotes documents in which one describes general philosophy or very technical details of ERP5 and which are not relevant to beginners.
Demo which show ERP5 in action with video
InThePress which lists the latest news about ERP5
Draft content and discussions must go to Discussion
If you want to discuss a new matter about ERP5 or share some content for which reviewing is needed (this is often the case of HowTo documents or documents which location is still not clear in the wiki), please publish them in the Discussion section. Once a document in Discussion has been reviewed, it can be moved to the core part of the wiki. This approach prevents from publishing documentation which would mislead some users yet allow for quick sharing and discussion.
If you are not sure, put a comment
It is sometimes better to add a comment to a document (in the last paragraph) rather than change content. In particular, if you are not sure of your contribution or if you want to include some question, comments are probably a better place.
If you are sure, change content
If you are certain of your contribution (ex. typo, missing dependency, etc.), it is better to modify a document directly. Anyway, changes can be reverted.
Respect the existing structure
This web site has 5 main sections:
Download contains practical information to download and install ERP5
Documentation contains practical information to configure, use and develop applications with ERP5.
Discussion contains references to discussion areas either in the form of mailing list, chat rooms or a wiki pages.
Screenshots contains screenshots of ERP5 in action
Demo contains videos of ERP5 in action
Please try as much as possible to create content which fits in the current structure. If you think you need to create content outside the current structure, use the Discussion section first.
In addition, this site includes a ResourceLibrary section for all contents which can be useful to developers but are not the main concern of ERP5 beginners. The ResourceLibrary uses a dual classification by region (ex. West Africa) and by field (ex. accounting).
