Peter 22Jan16: ToDo-1
Warning icon Gale wrote by email 12Nov15 Yes to the permanent ednote on the front page that says whether the Manual has been signed off by QM (hopefully in agreement with EIC). That makes it clearer for other (casual) editors. That ednote could also indicate when the Manual is frozen. Perhaps this should actually be a uniquely coloured "releasestatus" div for which we create a new template.
Gale 02Jul15: Agreed to include the Useful External Links portlet in the sidebar here and remove it from the source code, so that Manual editors control it.
  • Peter 27Aug15: I added this portlet.

    Gale: do you need to tweak the manual rollover from alpha to published so this portlet does not get duplicated?

  • Gale 05Oct15: Yes the currently added sidebar.html will need to be removed from the Audacity source code and references to it removed from the dump script in the source code. So if you want to go ahead this would create a P1 on Audacity Bugzilla.
    • Peter 12Oct15: I added this to Bugzilla as Bug #1240 - removed the P1 from here

Welcome, Audacity Manual editors!

There are some important editor notes on the discussion page. Also see the extensive welcome message for new editors.

All images throughout the manual should be set as "link=" to kill the links - to avoid relocating the user into the alpha Manual. See Consistency for the required syntax.
