Writing documentation can be fun

Project: Mahara using Sphinx and other tools

What do rST, Sphinx, Git, Geany, Gimp, Inkscape, Vim, Launchpad, Debian packaging, shell scripts, Makefiles and some other tools have in common? Combined they can be used to produce documentation. While writing documentation is often not the most fun part of a project, there are people who do like this job and who can make a documentation happen.

In this presentation I will provide insight into the tools that the Mahara Project uses for its user manual http://manual.mahara.org and share experiences that we have gained over the last couple of years in regard to the work flow for writing the user manual.
