Tutorial and Manual updates

Hi team,

Just so that you’re aware, we are currently doing a major update of the GPlates Tutorials. We anticipate to finish this by 4 September, but will post here again once the tutorial updates have been finalised.

Hi Sabin,

this is good news. Any chance that the documentation and the tutorial (and maybe the manual) could be hosted using a wiki-type platform (or a versioned readthedocs type setup) so that non-Earthbyters could contribute or improve the documents if one comes across errors etc.?


Hi Christian,

We’ll have a chat about this at our next internal meeting (Sabin, Michael, Dietmar, etc).

I’m guessing, if we did go down this road, we might want a process similar to github pull requests (so we can review the changes before they are committed). I don’t know if a wiki-type platform supports this type of workflow or not.


It’s a great suggestion - but let’s see how we can manage such a process. Christian, hope you and family are well!

Hi both,

yeah all good here, summer and holidays over :frowning: Let me know if you need input - have made some good experience with dokuwiki.org which doesn’t need a database. I suppose workflows around github should be good as well - no experience there apart from sphinx.
