    • Documentation
      • 9
        I would like to have a (short) discussion about the documentation of quattor. Maybe give a small update on what is done and where we are going. There are also some issues I would like to address: *discrepancy is locations:* - in configuration-modules-core most modules have a separate pod file. Some have inline documentation. - CAF, CCM, ... have inline documentation which is moved to pod by maven - maven-tools has inline documentation but this is not moved to pod *configuration modules core:* - a lot of "see also" with dead or broken links - mentioning of versions which don't mean anything anymore - references to bugs (none known), dependencies (none known), etc in pod files. - references to people. - unit tests for pod validation are run on the pm files, not the pod files. ... This list is not exhaustive, but I'll prepare some slides containing all of them.
