I've been going on over the packages in share/contrib and noticed many
of them are undocumented in the maxima manual. Only recently I've
noticed that there are packages outside those documented by the manual.
I think that other maxima users are probably in the same situation (ie:
believing that everything that the manual refers is all that exists).
In order to solve that, I want to contribute documentation.
The plan is to try to convert the .usg that some packages include and
the source documentation (if there's any) into something fit for the
manual. In the cases I don't understand what a package is for, I'll try
to put a comment in style of "if you want to do X, go look at
share/contrib/x and read x.usg".
I've talked with Robert Dodier and he agreed with the idea. For the
moment, the plan is to include all this documentation in a section of
I've started a list of the documentation status of every package at:
If anyone wants to join, I'll be pleased to share the task.
