This document describes how you can easily contribute to the documentation. I'm going to try to make it easy for everyone to help out with the documentation of Tomcat, more specifically the documentation for the connectors. This is written from a windows user perspective as I believe they will most benefit from it. For people using Unix it should be easy for them to apply these steps. Just substitute Unix syntax where needed.
The documentation is produced using xml with xsl style sheets. This effectivly seperates the content of the documents from the style, so all that contributers need to worry about the content. It is much easier to use than html.
It's all really quite simple. Here is what you will need:
- A recent version of Ant
- The source code for the connectors from subversion
- Any ascii text editor
