Collaborations between docs and hosting team

@javiercasares: last week Milana was on the #hosting-community channel explaining this new project / handbook / documentation about separating some of the most technical documentation from the Hubs.

There is a new label in the Issue Tracker ‘advanced administration’.

Initial check of the tickets, first idea on categorization can be found in this Google doc. This is a first “structure” with all the links and everything I found on those tickets. As this is a first idea, it will probably change a lot.

Thanks to @JavierCasares for structuring the new handbook.

First pull request for the Advanced Administration Handbook

#1 Create a first possible File Structure – a first level possible structure, with the “big categories”. This may change as we start creating and updating content, but this is a place to start.

Second pull request (technical one, for the #meta team)

#2 First Manifest file – a first manifest file, created manually because we will need to have the WP-CLIWP-CLI WP-CLI is the Command Line Interface for WordPress, used to do administrative and development tasks in a programmatic way. The project page is software configured… but we will have that when MetaMeta Meta is a term that refers to the inside workings of a group.

Those files will help us start creating new content and migrating the actual one. Then sync everything with the site automatically (so every time we do a merge, the content will be updated). These are first ideas, help and suggestions welcome.

@lcup sent an update to the meeting:
– added articles to move from HelpHub to DevHub docs for the new advanced administration handbook in: Documentation Issue Tracker, ticket 388 in GitHub. Thanks to @estelaris and @femkreationsfor doing all of the look-up work on this.
