Up to date Aptitude Documentation Online //at 12:51 //by abe

from the Preliminiary-Edition dept.

Aptitude ships documentation in 7 languages as HTML files. However the latest version available online was 0.4.11.2 from 2008 and hosted on the server by the previous, now unfortunately inactive Aptitude maintainer, and only covered 5 languages.

This lack of up to date online documentation even caused others to put more up to date versions online. Nevertheless they age, too, and the one I’m aware is not up to date for Wheezy.

So the idea was born to keep an up to date version online on Aptitude’s Alioth webspace (which currently redirects to a subdirectory of the previous maintainer’s personal website). But unfortunately we, the current Aptitude Team, are still lacking administrative rights on Aptitude’s Alioth project, which would be necessary to assign new team members who could work on that.

As an intermediate step, there’s now a (currently ;-) up to date Aptitude User’s Manual online in all 7 languages at

http://people.debian.org/~abe/aptitude/

and English at

http://people.debian.org/~abe/aptitude/en/

As this location could also suffer from the same MIA issues as any other “personal” copy, the plan is to move this to somewhere under http://aptitude.alioth.debian.org/ as soon as we have full access to Aptitude’s Alioth project.

Our plans for then are:

P.S.: Anyone interested in doing a German translation of the Aptitude User’s Manual? Sources are in DocBook, i.e. XML, and available via Git.

Hi! I prepared russian translation of Aptitude User's Manual (because I love aptitude!) several months ago. Currently it is a translation of 0.6.9.1 version. It can be found at github: https://github.com/dogsleg/aptitude-doc-ru.

I sent a message about it to debian-l10-russian, here: https://lists.debian.org/debian-l10n-russian/2012/10/msg00001.html. Unfortunately, only Sergey Alyoshin helped a little with editing. So, my tranlsation still lacks proofreading, but I hope that if it will be widely available, it will be corrected with help of readers. So, I'd like it to be added to other online translations and (maybe) to Debian repository. Could you guide me through that path?

Thanks for your work on aptitude!

Hackergotchi of Axel Beckert

About...

This is the blog or weblog of Axel Stefan Beckert (aka abe or XTaran) who thought, he would never start blogging... (He also once thought, that there is no reason to switch to this new ugly Netscape thing because Mosaïc works fine. That was about 1996.) Well, times change...

He was born 1975 at Villingen-Schwenningen, made his Abitur at Schwäbisch Hall, studied Computer Science with minor Biology at University of Saarland at Saarbrücken (Germany) and now lives in Zürich (Switzerland), working at the Network Security Group (NSG) of the Central IT Services (Informatikdienste) at ETH Zurich.
