LoCo Docs Day

For us to have a rocking LoCo Community, we need to ensure we have as much documentation and guidance in place as possible. We should ensure that every aspect of running and participating in a LoCo team is documented. This will make it easier for new and existing teams to be successful.

As such, on a LoCo Docs Day we come together as a community and review and update our LoCo documentation. Everyone should get together in the IRC channel (#ubuntu-locoteams on Freenode) to collaborate on the day.

NEXT LOCO DOCS DAY: 12 February 2009 in #ubuntu-locoteams on Freenode.

Helping out

Helping is easy, just look at the list of documents below and enhance them. We also need some docs, listed in LoCoTeamDocsToDo, to be created. The LoCo Docs Day will take place on #ubuntu-locoteams all day, so you can collaborate with other contributors.

Please list what pages you worked on at the bottom of this page. Wink ;)

Docs to work on

These are the docs that need expanding, filling out and building up:

  • LoCoFAQ - The FAQ should be a full and detailed page filled with all kinds of questions about the LoCo project. If something is missing, add it.
