The source code repository for the ConTeXt reference manual and ConTeXt: an excursion is kept at foundry.supelec.fr/projects/contextman. This article explains how to access the source code.

Contents

The contents of the repository

There are three directories at the top level of the repository:

Each manual's directory contains a Makefile; to build the PDF, the following should suffice (mutatis mutandis).

 cd context-reference
 make

ConTeXt: an excursion is available in several languages, stored in context-beginners/en/, context-beginners/fr/, etc. A number of extra make targets are available:

 make en          # make only the english screen and print versions
 make fr-screen   # make only the french screen version

Getting the source code

The source code is stored and managed using Subversion. For more information, see the Subversion article on this wiki.

Anonymous checkout, for curiosity

(Instructions taken from here.)

If you just want a copy of the manuals' source code, you can get it anonymously. Open a command prompt and enter the following command:

 svn checkout --username anonsvn https://foundry.supelec.fr/svn/contextman/

The password is anonsvn.

Non-anonymous checkout, for development

  1. Register an account on foundry.supelec.fr.
  2. Request to join the contextman project
  3. Check out the source code using your developer name and password
 svn checkout --username developername https://foundry.supelec.fr/svn/contextman/

ConTeXt, an excursion

There are several translations underway (Chinese, French, Vietnamese) for ConTeXt, an excursion, as well as several completed translations (Czech, Dutch, English). To start a new translation, follow these instructions. First, the preliminaries:

Next, make your own language's files based on the English files.

Prepare the Makefile, so that anyone can compile your translation in a single step.

Then it is time to start working on the translation.

When you are done, post a message to the mailing list announcing your finished translation. It will be made available in the official download locations.
