Dear sir,

I have a question regarding a series of articles that me and my
colleague are going to write for GEF. First off, please allow to give
some context. During our apprenticeship at VUB STARLab
(http://starlab.vub.ac.be) we used this framework intensely and along
the road we have conquered quite a lot of problems. The major problem
we encountered was the lack of documentation that seems to exist for
this project and this caused major slowdowns in the development process.

Now we are given the possibility to write some documentation to enable
future developers to speed up the process and hopefully learn from our
mistakes. We are prepared to publish this documentation (and all the
source code needed) to the community and by this hopefully help some
people.

My question to you is how do I publish this articles to the GEF project
and is it possible to get some feedback from experienced GEF
programmers?

As a teaser I have included a (very early) draft from my first article
to prove that I'm serious about this.

http://wilma.vub.ac.be/~javereec/dragndrop.pdf

Other topics will include :
- General GEF programs (MVC paradigm)
- Graphing (zooms in on the draw2d.graph package)
- View (How to visualize something without having a file on disk)
- GraphicalEditor (Same as the above but explains what developer has
to do when working with files)

With kind regards,
