Re: Proposal for GNOME Developers' Guide

Here's an updated listing of the book layout.  Book #1 is totally different.  I
lifted the three parts in Book #4 directly from Federico's UI Guidelines
template in gnome-libs/devel-docs/ui-guide/ui-guide.sgml.  Plus some more
fiddling about.

What does everyone think?  Should I shuffle the book order around some more?  Am
I missing any other topics?  Should the Installation Internals section go in
Book #1 or Book #2?

Book #1: Fundamental GNOME
  Part 1: The GNOME Library (libgnome, libgtop, etc.)
  Part 2: GNOME and GTK+ (libgnomeui)
  Part 3: Installation Internals (autoconf/make, m4 macros, etc.)

Book #2: The GNOME Framework
  Part 1: Baboon
  Part 2: WWW libs (gnome-xml/dom/http, etc.)
  Part 3: Media (Imlib, ESound, etc.)

Book #3: Core GNOME Components
  Part 1: Panel
  Part 2: Control Center
  Part 3: Help System

Book #4: GNOME User Interface Guidelines (style guide)

  Part 2: User interface components
  Part 3: General development information
