Shaun—what skill gaps do we have around the various book rendering
I'm going to try to bullet point skills people could bring. I have
varying levels of experience across these points, but I don't need to
own any of them if others are eager.
* Visual style work. Document design is related to but distinct from
graphic design. I have some experience, and I put together a draft of a
start of a visual identity. I'll remind the crowd that I am red-green
colorblind, so I always copy color palettes from others, and even then
I might mess up.
* CSS work to implement the visual style in HTML. I do this kind of
thing often enough.
* Asciidoctor experience to make sure our CSS and whatever else is
smoothly fits into how docs are generated, and aren't hacks on top.
* Work with asciidoctor-pdf (and possibly the underlying renderer
Prawn) to implement our style. I have some print experience, but it's
old, and tools are new. I can figure it out, but I have to yell at
clouds first or something.
* Site publishing/orchestration work. Is Antora the answer? Maybe,
maybe not. But different pieces of the site come from different places,
and there's not a clean publishing story.
