Re: O-wiki Editors Needed for Plugins

Chartscale has been moved to the main Plugin page, and the Beta Plugins page has been simplified


Volunteer Editors are needed for

Plugin Manuals:
Debugger
GoggleEarth

IacFleet
Projections

Beta Plugin Manuals:
Survey
Trackpoint
PyPilot (Sean has provided documentation on his website, too, but we need it presented step by step)
Autopilot Route (explain how to use and what is needed)
TideFinder

It would be very helpful to have the main plugins up to date!
IacFleet and Projections really deserve good documentation.


We also need the plugin icons used in the program to appear at the top of each plugin manual.
