@mozzy @herbert24 There has been some brainstorming around possible projects over the past couple of weeks, like working to make our REST API documentation more like GitHub, Twitter, or Google Maps API documentation, developing an approach to making our Wiki easier to improve, maintain, and use documentation, work on guides, etc.

We’ll propose 2-4 projects in our application and develop descriptions/project pages for those that we submit. @tendomart and @gcliff are helping put these together, along with our application.

We’ll need mentors to help the technical writers become more familiar with our community, how we work, where things live, what is up to date, what is not, who can answer their question about X, Y, and Z, etc. No need to be a technical writer yourself!


thanks @jennifer
