1. Introduction

This page is a starting point for Kexi User Documentation task within the Kexi Project.

There's already completed documentation (in Polish) and we're planning to translate this to English as a base language for further translations. So please don't start your own user manuals except tutorials, etc. Even then, please contact us before choosing your topic, if you want to make a reasonable, planned contribution, so we can know which topic is currently being documented.

Without online tools, documentation author needs to keep local copy of CVS (or Subversion) files and update/commit them. Examples of successful wiki sites regarding KDE is
