"That we seek out and publish a list of specialists, people willing to help with emc, both development and user questions" <-- in addition to the people already subscribed to the mailing lists?
or as a "point of contact" for a particular area
fenn: yes the idea came out of our discussion with the edm guys at fest. As we support edm, we ought to find someone who is willing to help people use emc for edm as well as tell the developers what emc needs to do edm better.
actually now that I read it, I think that didn't come through very well in the motion.
where was that axis documentation .pdf again?
I'm not sure
ah i think i found it
[04:09:23] <fenn> http://emergent.unpy.net/index.cgi-files/sandbox/axis.pdf
not the best permanent resting place..
maybe he wasn't happy with it yet
i've been wanting to have some page on linuxcnc.org with all of the .pdf's on it
a very good idea
but i've run into problems converting them, and they'd need someone to convert them each time
so it'd be best if there were a compile farm type script that did that and uploaded them to linxucnc.org
I think jmk might be right that they should be in the same cvs as the source and be "compiled" with make
if make is smart enough to do that
of course the gui editors (lyx) may not be scriptable like that
or if you're smart enough to make make do that :)
make can easily do anything the shell can
lyx I dunno about.
lyx can easily make pdf's from the commandline
it died when i tried to convert to html
the axis user manual got merged into EMC2_User_Manual.pdf
uploaded the latest to linuxcnc.org/images/emc2_user_manual.pdf with joomla
there's something wrong with the kerning in the typewriter font, and the images have been ravaged too
there's a trick I did locally to keep .png images looking nice---I think it involved using imagemagick 'convert' to turn ps into pdf, instead of the default.
oh what a surprise -- paul's taking a dump on the GPL again. "apt-get source emc2" on a bdi system fails because the .diff.gz is missing from his apt repository

On 2006-05-23 CVS will be taken down between 12:00 and 4:00 Pacific for upgrades. </sourceforge>
* alex_joni wonders if he should laugh?
there are a lot of projects who depend on sourceforge..
* SkunkWorks is happy emc got out when they did ;)
alex_joni: neat video - didn't see it all but got the jist of it. (lots of stuff has come out of romania)
SkunkWorks: I had no idea..
