This month we will be having a talk on experiences with modern documentation tools. This is not a tutorial on how to use them, but rather a series of anecdotes and examples of some relatively modern tools and the joy of getting them to work as advertised. This is a bit of a followup to the slide production talk from last December.
As per our newer format, we will have a one hour pre-meeting item from 6:00 to 7:00 for people who are new to Linux, have general questions, or wish to help out with people who are just getting started.
If anybody has a short topic they would like to present to the group or some new thing they would like to share, this is your opportunity.
This talk is on experiences with modern documentation tools, specifically some usage cases, tools used to attack the problem and the quirks and work-arounds that helped accomplish the task.
