I was just taking a look at Blender's Wiki (
https://wiki.blender.org/wiki/Main_Page) and I was happy to identify they
are using a similar wiki engine as we are. But I also noticed that they
have a more modern (beautiful?) visual than we do. Is this something we are
able to implement in our wiki as well?
Besides this... are we going to revamp our wiki and centralize
documentation material in it? Or are we going to readthedocs? Or are we
going to centralize our efforts in the Gitlab wiki feature? Please let me
I am really excited to read the article on how to write themes and icon
sets for inkscape 1.x once it is ready.
Do we know where one can find the minimum, and recommended requirements to
run Inkscape in their computers?
I was just wondering if this could be found anywhere.
So I went to google and tried: "inkscape minimum requirements"
Oddly enough the first link was pointing to Adobe Illustrator...
And when I did the same search in our own wiki (wiki.inkscape.org) the
results I got were:
Which pointed to the Effects, Extensions... but not to the actual
requirements (Software and hardware) needed to run Inkscape on one's local
If this really does not exist anywhere could we add this in the website or
in the wiki somewhere? What are the team's thoughts on this?
I've made a proposed new page which introduces something new
for the website, which is new official tutorials. The page pretty much
explains everything. For those who have website editing access, you can
see the proposed new page here:
For those who don't have editing access, the page gives
guidelines for the tutorials that would be acceptable, and invites
contributors. I would also contact all the tutorial authors which I've
found while creating Inkscape Community's big listings of tutorials
(https://forum.inkscapecommunity.com/index.php). And there would either
be a new channel in the chatroom for discussing these tutorials...or
maybe we would just use the Documentation channel. (I'm not sure.)
Generally my idea is that authors would submit tutorials, which
I, or anyone else who might be interested, would review, to make sure
they meet the guidelines. The tutorials must carry the CC-BY-SA or
equivalent license, which would allow the community to edit them, if
they ever needed editing in the future.
Exactly how they get on the website is not set in stone yet.
Currently my thought is that I would type them in myself. If the feature
were to become too popular, we might have to go to the proverbial "plan
b". Or possibly we could use the gallery, except it would require
authors to create PDF files. If we used the gallery, we would not need
the license. On the other hand, we would not be able to update the
tutorials as needed.
Anyway, questions and comments are welcome.

can you help by volunteering as an administrative backup for the
beginners' guide at https://inkscape-manuals.readthedocs.io ?
(as there's no official project email address, I'm not sure how else to
make sure that someone else has access there, too)
What I'd need from you is your readthedocs.org user name.
Currently, that position comes without any additional work, as I'm able
to take care of what needs to be done. It is only a backup thing, as
there's currently a bus factor of 1.
I'd like to have at least two other persons in the project registered
Hello, Good evening,
(I found the address of the list on the page Community -
First, I can not find a page link labelled as Contact on the Inkscape

Windows computer as a user without administration right in the FAQ page...

There is neither information about non-admin user installation in the

Thank you everyone!
Put the numbers in order of preference, so '32154' would mean 3 is
your first choice, 2 is your second choice etc. You don't have to rank
all numbers if you don't want to.
The system that is used for determining the winner is
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Instant-runoff_voting, using the package
openSTV from Ubuntu repositories. Ties will be broken randomly.
Name or nickname:
The name you usually use in your communication in the Inkscape project,
required in case you change your vote or forgot that you had already voted.
Contribution to Inkscape:
As we have decided to allow voting from Inkscape contributors (as
opposed to C++ developers and translators in the AUTHORS file only),
please help us with determining your eligibility for voting by telling
us what you do or did in the Inkscape project (very short, only main
area, e.g. 'writing Inkscape code', 'writing website code', 'writing
news articles', 'setting up infrastructure', 'translating', 'forum
moderation', 'bug triage', 'board member' etc.).
For future votes, we're thinking of using the system on the website.
Consider joining one or more teams  there, and to add a description
to your user profile that outlines what you do here a bit, in
preparation for that :)
