Hello Giuseppe, A single rebol documentation repository is a must have tool for rebol community and this is the goal of Rebol Documentation Project. Christophe Coussement (RebolTof) worked a lot to build rebdocproj.org and even organized an article publishing process with a review committee to ensure quality. The Rebol Documentation project is not french speaking only and already integrates documentation from Carl, Ladislav Mecir, John Niclasen and other. Now, Reboltof has no more time to maintain this website and asked me to host it on my webserver which hosts already www.rebol-france.org, the french portal. Now, there is DocBase and the goal is almost the same. I supposed that is focused on R3 but integrating knowledge concerning R2 is a good idea. In fact, I suppose that R2 documentation will be used for R3 documentation. I have no time to make translations but I'll post a message on the french forum about your request. I hope you will find some help. Some questions/ideas : - Is all the content of rebdocproj can be integrated into Docbase ? - Is there somebody responsible for maintaining the documentation (team, committee or single person) ? NB: Inside Rebol-France portal, there is a web page with many hyperlinks pointing to other webpages related to Rebol. Maybe you'll find some interresting things there : http://www.rebol-france.org/index.cfm?content_id=12 -- Karim EL FOUNAS EasyBraine SA Campagne des Rites, 8 - 1421 Ophain Bois-Seigneur-Isaac Tel: +32 (0)2 387 32 34 - Mobile: +32 (0)495 57 32 34 karim.elfounas-easybraine.com - www.easybraine.com Giuseppe Chillemi <gchillemi-aliceposta.it> a =E9crit :

Rebol Documentation Project is my ispiration for the DocBase pages about Rebol 2. I don't wont to make something better as your project is already at top level but I whish have the documentation (articles, guides, etc) in an Wiki repository so every expert will be able to make additions and modification when needed or in situation like the above where the maintainer as no longer the time to maintain is project. R2 page (still very basic) is located at: http://www.rebol.net/wiki/Rebol2

I suppose this too but I am not the person in charge for R3 documentation. My effort is to create the R2 part and consolidate what has been created in the past years. Then I will create a NEWBYE guide to R3 but everything else is in the hands of Carl, Grabiele and the other components of the R3 team.

Thank you for your effort, it is highly apreciated.

As I have structured the Rebol2 page, YES it should. There is only a copyright problem. The article/guide authors should give their permission to copy/translate the documentation to be published in DocBase.

I am responsible for the R2 part. I have just started it 2 weeks ago. If someone else whish to join another pair of hands will be useful. The wiki logic makes really a breeze the cooperation and when these hands will be available a larger committe/team could be create for the supervision of these pages.
