Generally, my idea is that all (or most of) Dragora's official
documentation should be part of the Dragora Handbook. Some of that
content would then be copied (verbatim or shortened) or linked to from
"the website". I put that in quotes because the Hanbook would also be on
the website, of course.

But "the website" would provide a different way of accessing the
information in the Handbook. For example, the content of the Report a
Bug page would also be in the Contributing to Dragora section of the

I'm currently working on a structure for the Handbook, based on the work
I've done on the Devuan project a while back. The quick overview of the
system is simply part of the About Dragora chapter there.

I would, however, also link to it from the Documentation page of the
website, because it is pretty important.

Yeah, that's pretty good already. I think that custom IceWM-Setup should
also be mentioned under desktop environments. And there's more: Things
like Dragora's release model (which is probably: fixed releases on a
"when it's ready" basis) come to mind.

Maybe it would be better to say a bit more about that because tlz is not
actually a "package format", like DEB or RPM, but a general archive
format. So, maybe, saying "lzip-compressed tar archives (tlz)" would be
better here.

I really need to find my notes on what to include in such a quick
overview (for Dragora especially). Haven't been able to find them yet.

We should probably put up a Git repository for the Dragora Handbook.
