Glossary in documentation - help us make it better


Userlevel 5
Hello. The documentation team is embarking on a common glossary to be used in all product documentation -- from EXOS to hardware to wireless. We're hoping some of our users can fill us in on what a useful glossary would look like.

Here are some specific questions we have:

  • Would you use a Glossary to find definitions of terms and acronyms over Google searching?
  • Can we leave out common networking terms?
  • Do you want definitions available by clicking over hovering over the term?
  • What else do you want to see?
Any insight you can give us will help us greatly as we build this glossary.

Thanks!

I would probably use Google first, then look on here.
You can leave out common terms.
hovering over word is better, i think
pictures for terms, maybe?

I just started using this site, and I like how helpful everyone is in explaining wireless to me, since I am new to the field.

It's a really good idea. I think, I'd use it.

I've had some troubles with special extreme specific topics and terms like UPM, AVB, SRP and some other.
