Hi Guys,

One of the areas that I'd like to get going now is to start getting some
extra documentation focused on actually using Buckminster. There's a
good few of us on this list now that with experiences, tips 'n' tricks
and other info that would be good to share. In order to get the ball
rolling on this, I'm going to start writing a series of wiki articles
about my experiences to date on getting automated build systems in place
using the technology.

There's some great content on the wiki right now, and I don't intend to
replace this, but I'm going to start work on a series of wiki pages
which I'm putting on the front of the Buckminster wiki entitled:

"Creating build systems with Buckminster".

I'm proposing the following structure:

Page 1 Getting Started: Introduction, Rationale, Basic Terminology and
Buckmsinter concepts, What needs to be installed

Page 2 Case study (simple project):, The CQuery, the RMap, Suggested
repository structure,

Page 3 Getting Advanced: cspec's and cspex's why you need them, creating
update sites

Page 4 Automating Things: Kicking off builds (ant), Managing your
platforms, Running tests

Page 5 Sharing the load: Things your developers need to know, How to
avoid becoming the "expert", Ongoing maintenance activities

Page 6 Way More Advanced: Thomas H's very own page in this series! If
you get this far, make sure to re-read page 5.

I know I've left out some Buckminster concepts here, but I'm just
covering for now what I've used and found to be useful. I think that
this will be the path that 80% of users of Buckminster will take.

And I need *your* involvement here guys. Suggestions up front on the
structure and content would be great, and feedback and comments as I get
the content up there would be most welcome.

I'll be putting this structure and page 1 on the wiki today and will
re-visit over the next few weeks with updates. I'll put a mail onto the
group as I get each page up. Bear with me if there are some delays,
things are bit.

Warm Regards,
Adrian.

Great ! I'm sure those pages will be appreciated.
Technical documentation is now good but as a beginner one often need some good / concrete examples to get a quick start rather than long but precise documentations.

I'll help as much as I can.

Regards,
Guillaume
