Hi all,

Nicolas, what's the deadline for the release?
I think you hit two items that are not covered even in our official
documentation so tackling these would benefit to both docs:
- the Overview: we have a list of features at [1] but it's also not fully
updated at the moment [2}
- the Quickstart (something we don't have): but we neither finished
updating our screenshots [3] - some might already be available to pick in
the repo though.

What I want to say, refering to our own undone changes, is that this is an
opportunity to fix two important features for both projects. And afaics it
doesn't require specific advanced skills, so I'd invite people willing to
help in documentation to give it a try. Could be a good starting point. The
visual changelogs might also help to find some main features [4].

About OSGeoLive, am I right that there's no html doc online and if i want
to view the docs I have to either run the dvd/usb/VM or build it myself as
explained in the ReadMe [5]?
Regarding the quickstart (*talking about the concept of quickstart since I
haven't seen the OSGeoLive's one and don't know if it duplicates things we
already have*), I wonder if it's not something we can consider having next
or within QGIS docs. There might be ways to bridge both resources, actually
just display on QGIS Docs website the quickstart from OSGeoLive-Docs.
Sphinx-gurus? And that would help QGIS documenters be more concerned
(talking about me at least) with OSGeoLive docs, bridge the projects and
there might be more advantages.
