Improving the content of App Developer Cookbooks

Registered by Michael Hall on 2013-11-04

The Ubuntu Developer portal has 'cookbook' pages that contain links to answered questions on AskUbuntu.com that tell how to implement a specific feature or accomplish a specific task. These are manually pulled and reviewed before being published to the site. There is a script that helps with this, but we can do much better. Brainstorm ways to improve this process, to get better content, keep it up to date, and automate as much as possible.

Whiteboard

Cookbooks: http://developer.ubuntu.com/apps/qml/cookbook/
Code: https://code.launchpad.net/~mhall119/ubuntudeveloperportal/askubuntu-scripts

== Options ==

1) Get approval to use a 'cookbook' tag on AskUbuntu and automate the process, requiring manual intervention only to remove obsolete questions

2) Gather a team of moderators who will run the manual scripts regularly, give them access to developer.ubuntu.com to publish updated lists
nice to have per topic moderators with domain expertise (QML, HTML5 etc)
