HelpHub Bug Scrub Notes, 26 April 2019

HelpHub bug scrub is back. For the time being we’re planning to hold these once a month. If there’s a need, we’ll reconsider this decision. All the meetings will be happening in #meta-helphub channel.

At this point, HelpHub has two places for issues: Trac and Github. Our aim is to move all Phase 1.5 issues from Github to Trac as these issues are really just fixes for what is already live at Phase 2 is planned to be worked on at Github for now.

Responsibility for Trac issues is very unclear and should be discussed between docs and meta teams. We don’t want to step on each other’s toes so it would be beneficial for both teams to make it clear who’s responsible for responses and decisions regarding reported issues.

At this bug scrub meeting we were discussing only Phase 1.5 issues.


Content has only one issue on Github. @atachibana said he’ll comment on it and close it.

Another content related issue is opened on track It is highly recommended that content reps of documentation team get involved in discussion.


We need decisions for 3 design related issues on Github. Also, we should see if @iviolini is still available for the project.


Good first issues

During bug scrub we detected several issues that can be labeled as “good first issue”. They require either simple fix or just copying code from Github PR.

  1. – need switching h2 for h1 as explained here
  2. – has code in PR
  3. – has code in PR
  4. – has code in PR
  5. – has code in PR

Need discussion


We have to decide which is appropriate for HelpHub

  • To keep the order of TOC as like as (paper) book, or
  • To show the latest article as like as Search results


We need to properly redirect this URL It’s not directly accessible from anywhere but it is possible to arrive from, let’s say, here by editing URL.

Ready for coding
