Docs Meetup Roundup – Dec 12, 2013

1. Docs Sprint

There’s another Docs Sprint this Saturday, Dec 14th @ 10am Pacific and you can join us on IRC at #wordpress-sfd.

It’s our last scheduled sprint of the year.

2. Admin Screen Updates

WordPress 3.8 includes a makeover of the WordPress Admin, so we need to update the Administration Screen pages in the Codex.

@kimparsell will post a list of pages that need to be reviewed and updated on make.wordpress.org/docs. Please help by grabbing one (or more) pages and updating.

3. DevHub

Still in active development. @rarst is working on the theme for the code reference and @krogsgard is working on the theme for the Handbooks.

4. Docs Issue Tracker

@Otto42 will be developing the issue tracker for Docs. Yay!

Also, Sarah Gooding posted about the Docs Issue Tracker on WPTavern.

5. Admin Help

The Admin Help project has been re-christened AH-O2.

If you’d like to help with this effort, show up on Mondays at 16:30 17:30 UTC in #wordpress-sfd, or get in touch with Chris Reynolds (@jazzs3quence).

6. Awareness of All Docs Projects

@DrewAPicture voiced a concern that the Docs Sprints have been focused almost solely on the Handbooks, while there are several other docs-related responsibilities beyond the Handbooks, like Admin Help, Codex, Inline Docs, etc.

We’ll work to make sure that all Docs projects get exposure and it’s clear how people can get involved and participate.

Since participation at the Sprints has been usually between four and ten people, often with a few new contributors, we’ll need representation from  other projects to attend meetups and/or provide instructions ahead of time, to help meetup participants get involved in the areas that suit them.
