Subject:Developer wants to take over documentation From:"Wilcox, John (Contractor)" <wilcoxj -at- WDNI -dot- COM> Date:Tue, 29 Apr 1997 14:02:00 -0700
Have any of you ever encountered a developer who wanted to take over the
documentation? It's just happened to me for the first time in my 11
years as a TW. And when he brought it up, a few others said they would
like to, too. Basically, it looks like I might have to teach developers
the idiosyncrasies of publishing, with Word no less!!!!! Any advice
will be greatly appreciated. I have to make a presentation Friday.
