New features are still arriving, so your mission is simple : Go download it. Go compile it. Go test it. And go hack on it, document it, translate it, fix it."

OMG! That (http://library.gnome.org/) is a thing of beauty and is exactly what I've been pining for! Prior to that, programming Gnome libs and APIs was just a matter of going through doxygen (or whatever software they used) generated API references. I had to scrounge around for tutorials to figure out how to actually USE the Gnome "objects" and libraries.

One thing about Java programmers is many have gotten good at including a user's guide into their code comments so that Javadoc-generated docs stand alone as both user guide as well as API reference.

Thanks go to the people who've been working on library.gnome.org. Will the web site allow for contributions and collaboration by people (perhaps via comments at the bottom a'la PHP.net docs or wiki-style changing with discussions a'la Mediawiki)?
