Classification and Desription of Technical Tools in the User Guide
It was originally planned to classify technical tools on the Convivial Tools User Guide following the US Schedule B Export Code.
It was also planned that the entry for each individual type of Technical Tool on the Convivial Tools User Guide should respect a standard structure, which might be as follows:
- Description of the tool
- Standard functions and specifications
Variable functions and options
How it works
Maintenance and repair
- Commercialisation of the tool
- Evaluation of products
- Comparative evaluation of products
- Links concerning the tool
- Links to documentation
Links to manufacturers and distributors
However, the above classification now appears rigid and unnecessary. It may be preferable simply to let the information on the User Guide evolve following its own logic
Evaluation of Technical Tools on a Wiki?
It was originally foreseen that the detailed information and evaluations concerning individual tools would be entered by the contributors to the Convivial Tools User Guide, following the principle of a wiki
However, for a number of reasons it has been considered preferable to protect the User Guide site against random editing.
