Fwd: Topics for review (gnome desktop help)

Hi Phil,

I tried sending the email with the images attached but it exceeded the limit for the mailing list.
Now sending without the png attachments.

How do I send over the screen shots?

Thanks a lot,

Hi Phil,

I've gone over your comments on the look-windowbuttons.page file and have made the necessary changes. Please see attached.

Regarding the screen shots, I've included the text that inserts the images onto the page. I've also included the screen shots as attachments. I will need your help with this though, as I am unsure as to where the images are stored, so the URLs may need to be changed.

 If these images don't fit the bill, just let me know so I can get other screen shots.

Excellent work again! I've returned the files with minor comments (only
in look-windowbuttons, I think). I'll let you review the comments and
then I'll commit the topics.

With regards to look.page: it's more of a placeholder at the moment.
We're writing topics under relatively broad categories until we get the
material finished. Once we have a good set of topics, we're hoping to do
a card-sorting exercise with some non-technical users to implement the
actual structure of the desktop help. This means that the current guide
pages, like look.page, might not exist after we've done all of the
structural work, so it's best not to put too much effort into writing
them at the moment. Your text looked good though, so I'll leave it in
there (look.page is one of the guide pages most likely to survive).

The same goes for title consistency really. Lots of aspects of the style
are up in the air and we're experimenting with them, so we haven't
actually settled on a title style yet. We'll do a full edit once things
have taken shape a little more and fix things like that.

(So, as you can see from all of the loose ends, we're still quite early
in the writing process!)
