docloop turns feedback into tasks,
converting online annotations of a document into issues in the author's bug tracking system.
docloop works for paperhive documents and github repositories.
Use the example app to link a document to your repository. Once the link is established all annotations (and replies) will be copied to your github issue tracker. After that docloop will check periodically for the new annotations.
Best case scenario is the author working on an open educational resource (OER) using LaTeX and publishing the source code in an online repository.
OER are meant to be shared, forked and to incorporate reader's feedback.
Lots of Feedback will be given by readers who are not familiar with the authoring tools and cant be expected to learn the ropes of the author's issue tracking system.
Online Repositories make it easy to share and fork content. Also: They usually come with version control and bug tracking system.
Having a source code makes it alot easier to fork and update documents. Turning that code into PDFs makes it easy to annotate!
