Working on that one actually. It is the file system API which has changed dramatically.
Great. Then I don't have to volunteer for that. :)
I also noted that the online version of the Haiku Book at http://factory.haiku-os.org/documentation/Haiku_Book_doxygen/html/ seems to be severely outdated - it's supposed to be a nightly build, but the generation date is 2008-02-14, which is a slight bit old. Any chance of fixing this?Yes, but not really a priority right now.
Hmm, if we make some progress with the docs, could we at least put an occasional snapshot up, even if the nightlies remain broken? Of course this will only be relevant if we get some progress with the docs, but I hope I'll find the time to get some stuff done.
Which part of the driver documentation were you planning on working on?
I've started with the poke driver. Right now I'm still experimenting with Doxygen and testing out how to present the information. Once I got a presentable draft, I'll let you know. I might work on other parts later, but we can talk about that when I get the first docs finished. Oh, and I probably won't be able to fully document the poke driver, this depends on how well I'll be able to understand the PCI config interface. While I am a programmer, I'm not too familier with our kernel. I hope it would be okay if some parts of the doc would only be an outline without much actual content. I think it's better to get some progress, even if incomplete, than to wait for a perfect solution. I hope this doesn't clash with your ideas about this. And maybe if we get a outline of the docs done, we could convince our kernel guys to write something if we can point them to some doc and say "Type here->", instead of having them learn Doxygen and formatting pages...
