Each Help.AIDE will be assigned a unique identifying number, allowing the ADT (as well as users) to keep track of the most current versions available (as well as a history of changes) logged in the Help.AIDERender cvs. The numbers assigned to AIDE files are not random, but instead are based upon a scheme that assigns blocks of numbers for related AIDES.
This page logs the proposals and changes made to the current numbering scheme. When this changes, please post the never version at the bottom of the list, but do not delete the previous versions.
Original scheme proposed by Craig:
1- 99 Reference 100- 499 General Overview (Readme, Alpha Manual ...) 500- 999 Quick Start (The suite that Donavan is working on.) 1000-1199 Global menus 1200-1399 Modes Help 1400-1599 Mode Examples 1600-1799 Electrics 2000-2999 Features 3000-3999 LaTeX manual documents 4000-4999 HTML Manual documents 5000-5999 Alpha Developer documents
1- 99 Misc. Reference (Readme, AIDE, Mailing Lists, Wiki, etc.) 100- 999 Quick Start (The suite that Donavan is working on.) 1000-1999 Learning Alpha 2000-2999 Exploring Alpha 3000-3999 Unlocking Alpha 4000-4999 Alpha Cookbook 5000-5999 Alpha User Reference 6000-6999 Alpha Developer Reference
Most or all of the Global Menus, Mode Examples, Electrics, Features, Alpha Manual, etc. will be organized under the proposed project headings. See also 3.aide (AIDE Format) at
cbu?: Donavan, could you please define some of the Chapters within the projects as you've defined them? I want to make it easier for documentarians have a better idea of what numbers should be assigned. (I'd still like to see all of the 'Electrics' tutorials grouped together, for example, so if you could designate some of the 100s blocks that would be very useful.)
dh: Craig, I've put together an outline of LearningAlpha?. Take a look at it. We can assign probable AIDE numbers based on that (or some future version thereof) outline. Hopefully, this answers your question.
