As some of you may be aware Ubuntu Documentation is struggling right now when it comes to active contributors well maybe struggling is putting things lightly. In any case Ubuntu Documentation Team needs new contributors and I have heard feedback from a number of community members that one thing they felt was blocker to them contributing in the past was that the process to get involved was perhaps too difficult and the existing team was not responsive to those interested in getting involved.
The good news is that there are folks in the Ubuntu Community who care about getting our documentation updated and shipped each cycle and there is now some interest to look at improvements that can be made to the Ubuntu Documentation Team processes in order to make the process for getting involved easier and more friendly.
Currently I have proposed a blueprint for UDS-1305 and I’m confident we will get a session approved and scheduled shortly to enable us to come together as a community and discuss and plan the future of the Ubuntu Documentation Team and define some work items to get things organized better.
So I’m putting a call out to the entire community asking that if you are interested in contributing to please look out for the documentation session and be sure to attend. Even if you can’t commit to helping each cycle perhaps you can just join in and provide some feedback on our processes and suggest some ideas for getting more folks involved during the Ubuntu 13.10 cycle.
Let’s make Ubuntu Documentation a first-class area of contribution in our community!
