Description

Documentation often gets a backseat to features in QGIS. It's a chore for people to do after the "fun" of building powerful features. Therefore, we should make contributing and distributing documentation as quick and painless as possible.

On http://www.qgis.org/en/docs, in addition to hosting documentation for each released version of QGIS, we should offer a rolling "Latest" release of the docs which is automatically built whenever documentation source is updated.

Pros:
- Show that you appreciate documentation changes by publishing them immediately.
- Always have available the "latest" docs for those using QGIS-master
- Makes it easier to publish the release version of the docs, since they're already built. Historically publishing documentation can lag quite a bit: (e.g. see #13212)

History

#1 Updated by Michael Kirk almost 4 years ago

I'm actually a bit confused: I see this http://docs.qgis.org/testing/en/docs/index.html which sounds like what I'm asking for, but it seems out of date. Maybe it's just been manually made?

#2 Updated by Sebastian Dietrich almost 4 years ago

Interesting question.

The latest documentation commit (2015-11-25 9:53 UTC) is not yet integrated in the testing docs (2015-11-25 14:15 UTC). Let's have an eye on it when it will show up there!

#3 Updated by Sebastian Dietrich almost 4 years ago

Ok, the mentioned commit made its way to the testing docs (checked at 2015-11-26 21:20 UTC). So probably this is the nightly build of the current documentation. It's sad :-(

Can this ticket be closed then?
