>     Platform usage

>     This book is written at flossmanuals.net <http://flossmanuals.net>,

>     Editing
>     =======
>     IMPORTANT: When you're editing the book, ALWAYS leave a screen either by
>     clicking on the 'Cancel' or on the 'Save' button. This is because, if
>     you leave it by just closing the tab in your browser, the chapter will
>     stay locked and inaccessible for other editors.
>     Version
>     =======
>     This book will refer to the Inkscape 0.92.x series (important for your
>     screenshots!).
>     Writing Style
>     =============
>     This book is meant as an introduction for people who are not yet
>     familiar with Inkscape terminology.
>     When deciding how to phrase something, think of yourself when you
>     started to use a vector editor, or think of a teen who you would like to
>     introduce to the program, and who you would like to enjoy the process,
>     and to be able to make nice drawings after reading the book.
>     Stay on topic, make it easy to understand, and keep the learning curve
>     shallow. Write less rather than more. Be nice and encouraging to the
>     reader. There exists another manual that provides the deep, technical
>     details. We need to keep in mind that it will also be read by people
>     whose native language is not English.
>     Communication
>     ===============
>     Anyone who edits the book can exchange messages, files and snippets via
>     chat with other users who are online at the same time.
>     For discussions of wider interest, or when you hit an obstacle, please
>     subscribe and send a message to the inkscape-docs mailing list at
>     https://sourceforge.net/p/inkscape/mailman/inkscape-docs/
>     <https://sourceforge.net/p/inkscape/mailman/inkscape-docs/> .
>     Currently, we have 4 book admins (Elisa, Brynn, CR and me). Admins can
>     change the book settings, add other admins and create release versions.
>     Chapter status
>     ==============
>     Chapters move from one status to the next, when they're being worked on:
>     1. needs translation:
>     Chapter isn't (fully) translated yet. If you speak both French and
>     English, this is where your help is needed! This step only requires you
>     to work on the text. You can ignore any images.
>     2. to be proofed:
>     Chapter is translated, and needs to be checked by someone other than the
>     translator, to spot errors and do some polishing. If English is your
>     native language and you're good with words, grab this job!
>     3. needs images:
>     The chapter contains images, but those are still French. Either it's
>     just their file names that need to be changed (Workflow: download image,
>     rename it on your computer, reupload, change link in the Chapter(s),
>     provide meaningful alt text, delete French image) or a new screenshot is
>     needed from the English interface. If you know how to do these things,
>     please jump right in!
>     (Hint: all image links follow this scheme: static/image_file.ext)
>     4. completed:
>     This chapter is more or less finished. Concentrate your effort on the
>     other ones :) If you spot a mistake or typo, improvements are still
>     possible, of course.
>     Important: Don't forget to update a chapter's status, after you have
>     worked on it ;-)
>     When you've got a great idea that would introduce a major change in the
>     book's structure, please confer with other editors on the mailing list
>     to see what they think about this.
