Re: [steering-discuss] Re: screen-shots Documentation Team


Hi :)
+1 
to the idea of this being voted on by the SC/BoD without re-arguing the points.

I had hoped the discussion would just congratulate the Documentation Team on 
neatly avoiding potential pitfalls that would take months to fix if MS used it 
as a side-issue in a any future dealings with them.  It makes sense to use 
primarily Windows screen-shots in marketing, for the reasons Italo stated, but 
Documentation takes a LOT longer to fix.  


Inevitably there will be specific sections that focus on individual OSes but the 
bulk of the documentation tries to stay consistent with itself rather than look 
randomly thrown together.  A flippant vote taken in under 5 mins to change 
documentation to use Windows screen-shots would result in many months of 
hard-work for the tiny documentation team and would result in no documentation 
being out-there until that work gets re-done.  Right now there are questions 
about whether to bother continuing to work at the documentation at all until 
after the SC/BoD has decided to tell the team how to do their work.  


If the SC/BoD wants official documentation to be done in a way that demands 
using Windows screen-shots and also relinquishes any responsibility for the 
completed work so that individuals might be left facing the full wrath of MS as 
individuals then i think we can forget about any documentation ever getting 
done!  


The question is really about whether to support the Documentation Team or to 
tell them to re-do everything in Windows and then not support them at all!  Have 
they really wasted their time and effort doing a bad job?
Regards from
Tom :)

Oh, sure, but Michael seemed to feel that this might be better
discussed in a private session? Would that be the intention? I can
sort-of understand that, given the kind of debate that might ensue?

In any case, I'll add it to the next agenda and thank you for your
permission for that.
