Cactus posted a note on the gnome-doc mailing list asking for documentation help on his project. But instead of using DocBook (the Gnome standard) for his documentation, he is using some home-brewed standard he concocted by himself. Check out this XML document in the "guikachudoc" format (http://cvs.gnome.org/lxr/source/guikachu/doc/resources .xml)
Why are programmers/project leaders so afraid of DocBook?
What if every single Gnome program has its own ad-hoc documentation standard? That would be a maintenance nightmare. We need a standard for Open Source documentation! DocBook is what most of the major projects use.
His project, Guikachu , does seem cool though. It's a graphical editor that helps one design screens for Palm PDA programs. If you've ever typed PILRC resource files by hand, you'd realize that this program is a major time-saver.
