Fantastic idea! As you say, there's quite a bit of text and I don't
expect that people are going to want to read it often. I was hoping
that the "Process Workflow" section [TBD] with associated diagrams
would address most of this problem:
But also I really like the idea of having up-to-date checklist(s?)
which reference the more detailed portions of the guide as necessary.
I could also see some kind of "Quick Reference Guide".
Do you have an initial list we can start with? From your message, I'm
seeing something like this:
- get approvals (CCC, Core)
- fix white space
- create putback message
- update repository (i.e. pull)
- create changeset
- deal with conflicts,
I know that they don't exist yet, but is this checklist just another
representation for the Process Workflow diagrams?
