Shaping a plan for the future of Ubuntu Documentation Team

Registered by Benjamin Kerensa on 2013-04-09

Documentation plays an important role in the Ubuntu Community and is a vital tool neccesary to the success of the Ubuntu operating system. Over time the Ubuntu Documentation Team has seen a decrease in contributors and a lack of clear leadership. It is important that we move to ensure the integrity and quality of our documentation by ensuring the Documentation Team has appropriate leadership, well defined on-boarding documentation and a low-threshold for contributing.

Agenda:

    Leadership of Team

    How we can improve the "getting started contributing" process

    Documenting Processes

    Review of current resources

    Update

    Call for testing of updated resources (complete? easy to follow?)

    Goals for Saucy

    Get project organized

    Ship up-to-date documentation for 13.10

    Document processes (release, editing, etc.)

    Immediate Tasks for starters

    Audience for the docs
