*{{bug|283734}} Documentation Best Practices
+
*{{bug|290129}} Babel Update Site in Target Defintion hangs for a while
**I'm starting to look in more details on how to build translated doc files.
+
**I changed the mirrorsURL to say ''<site mirrorsURL="http://www.eclipse.org/downloads/download.php?file=/technology/babel/update-site/galileo/site.xml&amp;amp;format=xml">''
**Looks like the idea gears more towards developers / doc writers, recommending to signle source the doc files on a wiki.
+
**Denis, can you confirm that it's correct?
**There are tools to help convert HTML doc files to wiki format. However, as with any conversion process, some minor manual clean up are needed after the conversion.
+
*{{bug|265194}} babel Ganymede build has some bundles mistakenly under property_files folder hence can not be picked up
**Our current thought of extracting the HTML doc files from repositories, translate, convert to wiki format and publish may not work very well.
+
**WTP used a folder name of "property_files" instead of "src" we see ususally
**Wiki conversion tools are not perfect yet. The minor manual clean up may be a problem.
+
**Sample link: http://babel.eclipse.org/babel/translate.php?project=webtools.jeetools&version=3.1&file=jeetools/plugins/org.eclipse.jst.j2ee.web/property_files/warvalidation.properties
**If a HTML doc file is translated into 34 languages, each translator has to decide on how the author wants the contents to be layout and displayed if the tag is not automatically converted.
+
**We have a reg exp to match the "src" source folder: ''(.*?\/)? # \4 optional src\/, src\/main\/ etc''
**HTML doc files also reference image files in the doc plugin.
+
**Can we modifiy that to match "property_files"?
**We have to have the English HTML doc files and image files in place on the wiki first. Otherwise, the translated doc files cannot reference the image files.
+
*build.eclipse.org question
**To sum up, we probably have to wait till some projects are following these Best Practices and hosting their doc files at the wiki first. Then we will work on the translation process of the wiki doc files.
+
**Is there a copy of Galileo SR1 installed?
**Denis or Gabe, do you know how we host the doc files at: http://help.eclipse.org/galileo/index.jsp ?
+
**The build script needs to call the p2 UpdateSitePublisher
