j1mcwould going people should really right because could though something18:06

nixternalI thought you were really drunk there for a second :p18:10

jjessehello j1mc19:32
j1mchow are kubuntu docs going?  has it been very difficult trying to write up docs for KDE3.5 and KDE4?19:34
ubotuNew bug: #194843 in kubuntu-docs (main) "Please add linitian over-ride for native-package-with-dash-version" [Undecided,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/19484319:41
dsaswhen making a patch we don't usually patch the pots do we?21:11
dsas(I think I'm right in assuming they're automatically generated)21:11
dsasJust in case someone responds after I leave, I'm asking because of the patch attached to bug 16244621:14
ubotuLaunchpad bug 162446 in ubuntu-docs "Outdated link in Programming section" [Low,In progress] https://launchpad.net/bugs/16244621:14
jpatrickdsas: hey, that's one of mine!21:16
dsasjpatrick: yup.21:16
jpatrickmdke ^^21:16
dsashmm, is the "-l" in "ls -l" an option or an argument? We don't refer to it consistently.21:41
dsas(Personally I call it an argument)21:42
jpatrickI call it an argument too21:50
dsasthe majority of the documentation in basic-commands.xml disagrees with us both.21:50
dsasIt uses option consistently except in one place. So I've gone with the flow.21:51
ubotuNew bug: #194886 in ubuntu-docs (main) "Hardy Heron cd repo name needs testing" [Low,New] https://launchpad.net/bugs/19488622:16
j1mcanyone around?  i have a couple of file that don't validate because of this: see <link linkend="add-applications">Add Applications</link>), but that approach to linking works correctly in yelp.23:21
j1mcany advice?23:21
j1mc(that link was present in the gutsy release)23:21
nixternalis add-applications in the same document you are using the linkend?23:25
* j1mc looks23:25
nixternalthat be the reason :)23:25
j1mcwhat type of link can i use instead?23:26
nixternalif we were still doing our documentation in bookform, it would work, but in article it doesn't23:26
j1mcand why does it not validate if it works in yelp?  /me confused.23:26
nixternalyou could use <ulink url="document.xml">foo</ulink>23:26
nixternalit works in Yelp?23:26
nixternalnow that is odd23:27
j1mcwould i need to provide any kind of path data?  <ulink url="../../document.xml">foo</ulink>23:27
nixternalI was thinking of translations for a sec, but it would be fine23:27
j1mci'll give that a try.  see if it works.23:28
nixternalsee, for Kubuntu we build out to HTML, which is stupid but we do23:28
j1mcsee, for Xubuntu, we don't know what the hell we're doing, which is stupid, but we do.  :)23:28
j1mcok.  thanks.23:28
j1mci'll probably post to the ML with how i fix it, just to see if someone has another suggestion.  this problem is in several docs, so i'd hate to change it in all of them, think it works, and then find out it breaks something.23:29
nixternalif you haven't yet, also on freenode is #docbook, and you can catch walsh in there sometimes to give you some pointers23:30
j1mcthanks.  :)23:30
nixternalhe is the inventor of docbook and can be of great help too when you are stuck with some tricky stuff23:30
