When I thought about this originally, I knew that if it went to a discussion it would get mired down by petty interests, picking over which font ? what size ? line-height ? what format and a mass of other distractions that would serve only to stop the project dead in it’s tracks (You must have seen similar junk at work). That’s why I just went ahead and did it. I hoped (foolishly) that once the bulk of the work was done, that the project would be backed by those that could and then supported by those that were willing to help. I got that wrong on 2 counts – it was never backed, and people didn’t offer to help. A person did – Thank you miklb. And this was despite me offering to mail CD’s to people, to step through the process – to basically do anything to keep this going.
I really do think that a person should be able to download the relevant part of Codex to read at a time of their choosing. But keeping on top of over 240 files and maintaining them was never going to be a job only one person could do – 5 people could, but one ? No. Not without paying them. So since Codex reopened after it’s wierd locking, that work I did has been gathering dust and going out of date. And there’s only one thing that’s worse than no documentation and that is out-of-date documentation. So since this was last mentioned at #meetup and was met with a funereal silence, I have had to decide what to do – do I kill it off or spend even more time doing WordPress work (time that already had been virtually dismissed due to the lack of support). So I’m killing it. The files are now inaccessible.
If you do want docs, don’t comment here – say what you think in the original forum thread but don’t forget that unless there are people willing to commit to helping then you can ask all you want and nothing will change. And yes, I know that there is something in the pipeline – as in something that was talked about briefly – but hey, do you think that will really happen ?
