Contributing to the Troubleshooting Handbook

The troubleshooting handbook needs contributions and the topic was raised for how that can be accomplished. There’s not really a method to grant that access in a good way. If someone has some content they would like to contribute then perhaps posting it on their own site first may be how to get started.

It’s easy to grant access to someone who has been collaborating with the different teams for years but granting that access to new people is delicate. It’s an idea that needs working on.

Status of the Troubleshooting handbook

@jerrysarcastic has generously offered to post a separate status update on that topic. 😉
