[HIG] A new plan for HIG

HIG folks --

So I've spent several hours over the last few days integrating comments into the HIG draft. I have decided not to actually complete this integration; I got most of the reviews integrated, but have not included all of Greg, Colin, or Maciej's comments (sorry guys). The doc is committed to CVS as hig_draft1_comments.sgml; I also have a PDF version at

HOWEVER: This is not all that important. What I have realized in doing this task is that, unfortunately, there are very few clear decision-making points in this document where we can really resolve any concerns via a vote. Rather, there are several sections which need serious rethinking and rewrite, and there are some general overriding concerns which need to be addressed by the authors of each section.

HENCE, here's what we're gonna do.  If you don't like it, wah. :)

0) No IRC review meeting. Folks who want to meet on IRC to discuss specific issues of concern to them in specific sections of the doc are welcome to propose a meeting time, but we are not going to go through the entire document.

1) On Monday (tomorrow), I will write and post a document detailing the changes that are necessary in each section. Some of these changes will be more general than others. These changes will be based on all the reviews which have been submitted (including those which I didn't actually get "integrated" into the above doc). 2) In the next 14 days, authors will integrate those changes into their sections and resubmit. If you don't want to make certain changes, or are confused about the changes that need to be made, please feel free to discuss those changes on the mailing list. If you don't want to do it, or don't have time, let us know and we'll find somebody else to rewrite your section for you. 3) As sections are committed, please send an email to hig gnome org so that we can start reviewing changes as they happen. I think we should do this at the major-section level. Hopefully, after 2 weeks, we'll have a version which we're all comfortable posting to a wider audience for further review.
