Re: New recruit, help needed in choosing project

I have one question.

On this box I'm running Ubuntu with Gnome 2.12.1, but I run Gentoo on
another box.  How do I know that 1 version of Yelp I would look at would
be the same that you guys would have?

What I mean is Ubuntu and Gentoo users look at the same
documentation all the time?  I doubt that's the case.

Could you tell me how I can acquire the ldatest Yelp sources so I could
look at the documentation on those?
