[PATCH] Update TG2 Contributing and DownloadInstall Docs

Reported by: dlatornell Owned by: mramm
Priority: normal Milestone:
Component: Documentation Version: trunk
Severity: normal Keywords:


As discussed on the trunk list a while ago ( http://groups.google.ca/group/turbogears-trunk/browse_thread/thread/47698bb9911a2da9) I've done an update on the Contributing and DownloadInstall pages to consolidate the instructions for source installation into one, cannonical location in docs/main/Contributing.rst.

Specifically, the attached patch:

  • updates Contributing.rst to my understanding of the current instructions for installing tg2 from source for developers
  • replaces the "install from source" section of DownloadInstall.rst with a link to the source installation section of Contributing.rst
  • replaces the content of INSTALL.txt with appropriate links to DownloadInstall.rst and Contributing.rst
  • deletes the paver-based installation instructions from README.txt

It also includes instructions for checking out and building the docs tree that reflect the recent move of docs out of tg2, and adds some comments about testing based on recent discussion on the trunk list.

One thing that I'm not clear on is the role of epydoc. I've left the text concerning its use for API docs in, but I wonder if it has been superceded by Sphinx:autodoc?
