Hello All,

I'm currently working on creating documentation for the api of several basic
sugar packages. I've started putting some of this work online at
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/Sugar-api-doc. I'm sure that many of you have a
lot of knowledge and experience with different modules in sugar and would
appreciate any help in developing content and ensuring its accuracy. In

- if there are any specific tasks associated with a class or package that
aren't documented yet, please feel free to update the wiki yourself or send
me code fragments with clear descriptions.

- if there is any feedback you have on the organization of the wiki pages as
I've set up or if there is some major package I really need to make sure to
document, please let me know.

- If there are any issues of accuracy with anything that is on the wiki,
please let me know.

I've made a point to write and test all sample code that goes up on the
wiki, so it should work with the latest builds of sugar. But, if things do
change with the underlying code or if there are style issues, please do let
me know asap. Also, I found some really good conceptual documentation at
http://wiki.laptop.org/go/OLPC_Human_Interface_Guidelines. There are links
to more detailed api documentation pages, but these seem to be empty and in
need of completion. I think it will be good to link the parts of this wiki
that refer to api's to the documentation that I'm helping to set up above.
If you have helped write some of the existing documentation, please do get
in touch!

Right now, I'm specifically working on documenting the datastore features of
sugar and would especially appreciate an opportunity to talk with someone
with experience with the journal. In addition to email, I should often be on
#sugar and #olpc in IRC under the name fanwar.
