Hi all digiKam users,

Following all messages posted here, we can said that application
documentation need to be re-written, updated, fixed a lots. There are
important question posted in this room which must be factored in the user

This one was not been updated and maintained since.... 2011. The current
doc is not so bad but a lots of parts are missing and need a fresh update
using 5.x release.

Few weeks ago, i was contacted by Wolfgang Scheffner
<https://plus.google.com/u/0/118393660693739377704?prsrc=4>, a German user
who want to contribute to write documentation. So i started to review all
files, and prepare the contents to be updated.

See my post on this bugzilla entry for details :


The documentation is written in docbook format (XML based). It's not too
complicated to understand. In all cases, if a possible contributor don't
want to touch docbook file as well, I can process integration of simple
text file in docbook as well. The most important is to have English
contents to share in the documentation about most common operations done by
end users with digiKam.

A first approach to update the documentation is to backport and adapt the
old contents from KDE wiki pages :


I'm still open for all questions about this topic if someone is interested
to contribute and share experience through the official documentation.

Thanks in advance

Gilles Caulier
