We are working very hard to improve Turbine's documentation. Our weakest area is introductory material for new users. Currently, the best resource is the turbine-user mailing list. Although almost every question has clear answers found in the list archives, it is time-consuming to find them.
Below is the list of documentation items we are working on listed in order of priority from greatest to lowest. We need help with them all!
Now that you know what we are working on, you need to know the best ways to help. Content is farmed and stabilized on the Turbine Wiki until it is stable enough to become official documentation. Additionally questions are answered and re-answered on the turbine-user mailing list. You can help the Turbine Documentation effort by:
Get The Source: Check out the latest source from the Turbine subversion module. You can learn about the Turbine repositories on the download page. The Turbine documentation resides in the turbine-site tree:
svn checkout http://svn.apache.org/repos/asf/turbine/site
Build The Site: The documentation is built using Maven, with the following command:
Afterwards, you should get something like:
BUILD SUCCESSFUL Total time: 20 seconds
You will find the built HTML in $PATH_TO_MODULE/target/site.
