Doc Team

Documentation team report for 2014.02.19 Ubuntu Community Council Meeting.

The doc team is somewhat fragmented, with members focused on their own areas and little cross interaction. Major areas include: Ubuntu-help (unity); Xubuntu help; Serverguide; Wiki. All areas suffer from too few active contributors, as we suspect is true for most teams.

The Serverguide really needs major contributions from subject matter experts. The doc team can handle typo corrections and such, but often lack the ability or expertise to contribute for major content contribution. It should be mandatory for developers to contribute to the related area of the Ubuntu Serverguide.

Being actively involved in the doc team at a higher level is a major time commitment. Everything takes 7 to 50 times as long as one would estimate at the outset. In terms if infrastructure or tools, if something doesn’t work the time to dig into it is simply staggering.

It would help if some of the more mundane per release cycle things were done earlier in the cycle. Actually, why not have a pipeline approach, where the name of the release is known one release ahead and the simple stuff, such as the mascot creature graphic is then done at the start of the cycle, rather than the very very end.

Fixed Agenda Items

  • questions you might have.
