2012-03-23documentation: Updates for [YOCTO #1717].Scott Rifenbark1-3/+3
Minor edits to the BSP Guide, the Development Manual, and the Kernel Manual to address [YOCTO #1717], which noted confusion over the kernel manual when a user was trying to find kernel configuration information. The fix for this bug involved several areas. I had previously created a new section called "Kernel Configuration" in the kernel manual and "Configuring the Kernel" in the YP Development manual. There were several rounds of feedback from Bruce Ashfield. This commit represents the final touches on the three manuals to address the bug.

I have thrown this section out to the Yocto Projects Discussion list for feedback. It will change.

2011-11-25documentation: Changed all manual links to point to "latest"Scott Rifenbark4-20/+20
There are many references to YP documentation throughout the YP manual set. They used to have hard-coded links to the current release (e.g. yoctoproject.org/docs/1.1 for Edison). This created a situation where if you went to a document on the website and clicked on a external reference to another manual, you would redirect to the current manual on the website. Really, you would want to go to the latest manual, which is one that is under development. Changing the links to "yoctoproject.org/docs/latest" makes the tip of master, which is used for devloping the next release, always have references to the manuals being developed and not back to the stable released set of manuals. This "latest" and "current" scheme for the links is not perfect. What has to happen when the latest set of the manuals freezes and becomes the next stable release, all the links in the docs will need to be changed from "latest" in the URL to the new release number. So for example, all the "latest" occurences would need to be changed to "1.2". Then for the next cycle as development begins again, the links need to be infused with "latest" again.

2011-06-13documentation: [YOCTO #1025] build system for docsBeth Flanagan2-38/+0
These changes fix the following issues: 1. Multiple Makefiles. There really is no need for this. 2. Unable to maintain more than one version of the docs on the webserver. This is a quick fix to enable the above. In order to build the documentation, at the top level, issue a: make all DOC=<doc directory name> make all DOC=kernel-manual Also, some changes need to occur on the webserver to fully incorporate these fixes. http://www.yoctoproject.org/documentation/ The docs are now published to: http://www.yoctoproject.org/docs/<Release MM.mm>/<doc name> The main page should be changed to point not only to the current doc release, but also to the prior releases. This will enable us to maintain prior release documentation without stomping over it when we publish new docs. Also, we'll need to repoint the yocto-quick-start link to yocto-project-qs. Or rename documentation/yocto-project-qs/* to support the website naming.
