1.2. The FreeBSD Documentation Set

The FDP is responsible for four categories of FreeBSD documentation.

Translation teams are responsible for translating the Handbook and web site into different languages. Manual pages are not translated at present.

Documentation source for the FreeBSD web site, Handbook, and FAQ is available in the documentation repository at https://svn.FreeBSD.org/doc/.

Source for manual pages is available in a separate source repository located at https://svn.FreeBSD.org/base/.

Documentation commit messages are visible with svn log. Commit messages are also archived at http://lists.FreeBSD.org/mailman/listinfo/svn-doc-all.

Web frontends to both of these repositories are available at https://svnweb.FreeBSD.org/doc/ and https://svnweb.FreeBSD.org/base/.

Many people have written tutorials or how-to articles about FreeBSD. Some are stored as part of the FDP files. In other cases, the author has decided to keep the documentation separate. The FDP endeavors to provide links to as much of this external documentation as possible.

All FreeBSD documents are available for download at https://download.freebsd.org/ftp/doc/

Questions that are not answered by the documentation may be sent to <freebsd-questions@FreeBSD.org>.
