"Welcome to the first issue of the GNOME Documentation Project Status Report. The GNOME Documentation Project Status Report will be a (roughly) biweekly report describing the recent events of the GDP (GNOME Documentation Project) and the status of various documents. I hope that these reports will be useful for GDP members, translators, developers, and potential GDP contributors...."

"The goal of the GDP (GNOME Documentation Project) is to provide a complete documentation system for GNOME. The main part of this is writing and maintaining application manuals for all applets and applications in the main GNOME distribution and GNOME Office. The GDP also writes other user documentation such as application hints (a la gnome-hint), pop-up help (coming soon), the GNOME User FAQ, and the GNOME User's Guide. The GDP also writes and maintains developer documentation such as API documents, White Papers, and developer tutorials. These developer documents are generally written by developers who work with the GDP since it requires technical expertise on the particular topic. And lastly, the GDP, along with various GNOME hackers, is responsible for designing the different components of the GNOME help system, such as the tutorial/demo wizard (coming soon), pop-up help (coming soon), and the documentation browsing system."
