The OpenCPN documentation
is handled through a wiki, OpenCPN User Manual | Official OpenCPN Homepage
. A snapshot of this wiki, at time of a release, becomes the documentation
. This is not quite true, as some parts
may not make it for different reasons.
It's a big advantage for OpenCPN
to have an up to date documentation. Just think about how many times users are referred to the documentation after an initial query in this forum.
Even though it's a wiki, there are quite a limited number of users that actually contributes. Luckily this number seems to increase lately.
Someone, or a group of users, has to make sure that the wiki is updated with all new features and corrections in time for the release. I have bee this "someone" for quite some time now. As I'm going cruising, very soon now, if all goes to plan, I will not be in a position to continue this work in a timely fashion.
Time for someone else, or a group of users, to step up to the task.
I started a page describing some aspects of how it's done, Updating the User Manual | Official OpenCPN Homepage
Who will write an Android manual?
