I do have a technical documentation for Dnd and gfx in Google Docs. Here
is the list by versions:


1.1: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=d764479_20ghbr97c8
1.2: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=d764479_11fcs7s397

I suspect that both DnD documents are the same (need to verify that),
because I didn't have a chance to update the latter one.


0.4: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=d764479_8f8nghk
0.9: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=d764479_1hnb2tn
1.1: http://docs.google.com/Doc?id=d764479_9hgdng4g8

Chris Mitchell volunteered to port the latest gfx document. Starting
next week I am going to update existing documents to make them current,
and document other parts of Dojo I was working on.

| Hi all,
| a short status update for everyone regarding our docs.
| I'll try to send a regular update so we can keep track of how far we
| are, its easy to loose track bearing the amount of stuff we could
| document :)
| As we discussed, our doc release goal will be to have a releasable
| version for TAE.
| As a minimum this should include the content of the dojo book.
| If we can show the community that besides the great release features
| between last DDD and next DDD we have tackled the docs I am sure that
| we will get lots of positive feedback.
| This will give the talks on the community day a solid foundation,
| people (and we) can refer to.
| Woots ;)
| -----------
| I wanted to give a big w00t to Jared's doc effort on dojo.data
|   or http://docs.dojocampus.org/dojox/data/FileStore or
| ) and *all* others who already have invested lots of time - I am
| amazed how much I don't know :). Its great to read and learn more
| about Dojo every day. If we can keep up such a quality our docs will
| stand out besides others.
| Dojo
| ------
| We still need to cover a lot of basics as we discussed in yesterdays
| meeting, the stuff we use on a daily base.
| James already said that he will "attack" dojo._base - if you can pick
| modules from dojo as well that would be really good. Afaik most
| popular not documented modules are
| * dojo.fx
| * dojo.dnd (probably the entire dnd doc is already existing inthe
| google doc from Eugene - need to confirm status and then migrate)
| * dojo.back
| ...
| Dijit
| -----
| Dijits documentation coverage is getting pretty good, we are still
| missing a few of the non-form / non-layout widgets.
| It would be great if you can go over what we have already and add
| stuff you know. A lot of the dijit pages are very example driven which
| is good, but probably therefore are still missing some features and
| elaboration.
| Dojox
| --------
| Dojox is a huuge project which will take more time, it would be great
| if we can get documentation ready for the most promoted projects.
| * Grid
| * Charting
| * Cometd?
| * gfx?
| * widget? (Some widgets are already documented)
| For all other modules, each owner should invest as much time as
| possible to get those documented as well.
| The whole project is moving along well. Tobias and I will make sure
| that https will work in the next few days and that the remaining
| features will get implemented (PHP upgrade =/, PDF, Api pulling, fix
| doctests, CLA check?).
| It also would be good to take a look at forum and #dojo FAQs - if we
| see topics worth documenting we should throw them into docs as well -
| the more "real life" oriented we are the better.
