main dev doco site?

Postby Erich Schulz » Tue Jun 11, 2019 2:34 am

Heya,

I'm looking over here:

https://www.freecadweb.org/wiki/Developer_hub

which alludes to a book written in git (markdown) https://github.com/qingfengxia/FreeCAD_Mod_Dev_Guide

but this repo has not had any PRs for 2 years.

So given it appears that work on the book has stalled does that mean that the wiki is now source of truth?

Basically the developer hub and the advanced user wiki can have a bit more love.
for both holds the ones who contributes to the code don't add everything to the wiki. For the user section there are probably enough contributors who fill this gap but this isn't true for the other two.

I personal think that there isn't a big gap between the wiki and the document created by qingfeng xia isn't that big. The core of how FC works is mostly stable.
