This day is called Saturday. No, more correctly, it is already called Sunday .... however ...

It was the big GNOME Applets Manual day for me. Basically, more or less everything I did today had to do something with documentation in gnome-applets.

First of all, I helped John Fleck to get his docs checked into CVS. Not a very difficult job, just a whole bunch of work to get all the Makefile.am stuff done - hey guys, can you imagine that I don't even want to be #1 on Havoc's score-o-matic .... :)

Ok, it's nice to be #1 .... sure - but back to more constructive things.

After a little discussion with telsa in #docs, I liked the idea to have a big GNOME Applets Manual with the docs from all the applets in it and I started hacking on it.

Well, the first step towards this GNOME Applets Manual is now done and it already works for modemlights, webcontrol and diskusage ... more applets to come.

We need to contact the two applet authors who also write docs for their applets to reformat them so they only have a single <sect1> in them.

Hmm ... to summarize, it's getting fun to "work with" documentation ...

Until another day.
