Scope of documentation for sprint
Audience: kids, parents, and teachers. End-users, basically.
Getting Started Guide for the file system, wireless connections, everything you do without Activities. Walter Bender has started with [User:Walter/sandbox], which points out where the Floss Manual can be updated to be hardware-free (for example, his annotations with OLPC-XO-1-specific hints for keyboard shortcuts and specifics for the OLPC-XO-1 hardware). Updates should be made to http://en.flossmanuals.net/olpc_simple.
Getting Started with an Activity for specific Activities, such as Browse and Record. A starter manual for the Record activity can be found at http://en.flossmanuals.net/olpc_record. Priorities needed for which Activities to start first.
