Process to get tutorial into Inkscape's >Help menu

Asked by vwanweb on 2010-05-13

Hello,

  I have a couple of Beginner Tutorials on Inkscape. I use them in a on-line 3D gaming virtual world (similar to the game called 'The Sims'). The students have repeatedly encouraged me to try and get the tutorials into the inkscape production build. What is the process for attempting this?

thank you,
vw

A first step could be to file a report in the bug tracker for each tutorial and attach the SVG file to allow discussion of content and technical details how to include it into the repository for the other tutorials (AFAIK the tutorials are stored in DocBook format to allow easier translation into different languages for distributing).

Hi,

The tutorial files are currently hosted in http://inkscape.svn.sourceforge.net/viewvc/inkscape/doc-docbook/trunk/

Each tutorial is written in english in a DocBook (.xml) file, and then converted to po files which can be edited by translators (with poedit or a text editor), and converted again to html pages or svg files when needed.

You can create a new tutorial by just providing the xml file and the linked images, but you can also modify the existing ones if your content deals with the same subject. I would be easier than creating something from scratch.
