CASA Documentation Update Planning

Planning and assignments for the transition to the plone based documentation framework.


  • ? May 2016: Plone server production-ready.
  • 1 May 2016: Initial outline of document complete and agreed, assignments made.
  • 20 Jan 2017: All sections populated, ready for review.
  • : Review complete. Begin update of task XML and population of task pages
  • 1 Jan 2017: Integration of documentation to build process complete (generation and harvesting of pages). "Explain" functionality available in CASA.
  • 1 March 2017: Plone documentation serves as documentation for CASA release, deprecation of cookbook.

Meeting Minutes

A couple of things to note:
  • CASA 4.7 will be released with the Cookbook and the current documentation.
  • I'm sure there will be questions I'll answer them here.
