Timeline for Documentation Review & Acceptance

(Maggie Harder) #1

@c.antwi @jwnasambu I was wondering how long it will take for any documentation changed to be reviewed and/or accepted? I have completed all of the steps for the documentation and have placed it in the correct category on the documentation page.

@jwnasambu, I spent a few minutes during our PM call to look at this request. It’s not very clear what you are asking of expert reviewers.

For example, you say:

Its my kind request you spare sometime and give your comments on the changes made on this link.

When I visit your link, I see a page that appears to be directed toward people who want to contribute documentation changes. As I scroll down the page, I can see a table “Expert Review and Corrections” that contains a redundant “PAGE TITLE” column, a “PAGE LINK” column, and then a “PAGE COMMENTS” column that appears to have a description of changes made to the page.

Okay, so it appears that you’re asking that we review a page in the “Expert Review and Corrections” table? And then what? Am I supposed to reach out personally to the editors and let them know? Am I supposed to add comments into the “Page Comments” column? It’s unclear.

Can we make it easier & more intuitive for reviewers? For example, something like this:

Reviewers: Thank you for your help! After selecting a page to review, please enter your name, review the changes, and then enter either “approved” or “needs work” into the status column (including comments to direct any needed work)

Page Page before changes Changes made Description of changes Reviewer(s) Status Reviewer comments
For Open Web App Developers View original View changes Added and updated information underneath every title listed on that page (What is an OWA, Quick Overview, How To Write An OWA, Examples).

Thanks for sparing your time to look through this table. The table was just to guide the person reviewing on the changes made. The "page comment "column give the reviewer the clear picture on the changes made on the “page link” column. Since it appears confusing, let me incorporate the suggested changes. Once again thank you.

@mharder thank you for working tireless to ensure our documents are up to date. We have come up with a new reporting format on this link. kindly edit it basing on what you have been doing so that the review process can kick off.

(Juliet Wamalwa) #15

I have just made the changes as @burke had suggested. Initially we were making changes directly on the original wiki document but now we have to separate the old content from the new content. I have reached out to the writers through PM to fill the information in the table once its done I request you help in reviewing.

@c.antwi @jwnasambu Hello, I just added a new page to the wiki on OWA Unit Testing. I was wondering how I should document that on the “Documentation Review Work Needed” page. Is it okay if I include it in the “Expert Review and Corrections” Table as shown below:

(Juliet Wamalwa) #17

Thanks I have seen it. Am assigning someone to review it.
