|Re: [p2-dev] Adding an icon glossary|
I’ve attached a first draft of the help files to the bug (#389777). Comments would be greatly appreciated!
Thanks, I’m glad to hear it.
I’ve opened https://bugs.eclipse.org/bugs/show_bug.cgi?id=389777 – please continue the discussion there.
This is indeed a good idea. The TOC for the p2 related help is available in the http://git.eclipse.org/c/platform/eclipse.platform.common.git/tree/bundles/org.eclipse.platform.doc.user/tasks/tasks-129.htm and all other relevant files should be referred from there.
For further discussion on the details of this work, I propose that you open a bug report where we can answer questions and review the contributions.
I hope this is the right place…
In the UI for p2, specifically the Install New Software… dialog, various icons are used to identify possible updates. It would be good if explanations of what they meant (i.e. an icon glossary) came up when the “?” button is pressed. But (at least in Indigo), they don’t. I’d like to work on adding this, but I’m not sure where the help files are defined, or how to go about changing them (and, for that matter, I don’t yet have an authoritative description of what the icons mean).
Thanks in advance for any pointers.
