Hi all,

as you all know we don't really have an Etoys documentation. So let's 
start writing it. As I wrote earlier I propose to use FLOSS Manuals. It 
is used by the olpc and sugar community for writing manuals and books. 
To get started we should have a TOC outline. Here are my suggestions:

1. Introduction (short description what etoys is about)
2. Getting started (technical description on how to install and start 
etoys on different operating systems)
3. User Interface (painting tools, halo, viewer ...)
4. Tiles (describing every available tile)
5. Objects (everything from the supplies bin and object catalogue, flaps)

What am I missing? Of course we can have subchapters and also later add 
main chapters if we find out we need it. Here is the manual for 
TurtleArt so you can get the idea what our documentation could look like:

What do you think? If we come up with a TOC outline I can send it to 
Anne Gentle from FLOSS manuals to set it up and we can start writing:)
