Documentation

Welcome! This group is for news and discussions related to Drupal documentation. If you join this group, you'll be signed up to receive email notifications; you can change your preferences on your account page. You can also subscribe to posts via RSS (check the sidebar of this page), and via email using the links at the bottom of this page.

Anyone can contribute to documentation, and the entire Drupal community will benefit from your help! You do not have to formally join a team (or this group) or ask for permission -- just start writing and editing. The Contribute to Documentation section on Drupal.org has more information, and the New Contributors section on Drupal.org has some tasks that will help you get you started.

If you have ideas about how the processes, procedures, and tools for Drupal documentation can be improved, the Documentation Working Group (a committee that is part of the Drupal project governance structure) invites you to make suggestions. Information on how to do that is on the Documentation Working Group home page.

New Drupal group: DITA Tech Comm CMS

Hi,

There is a brand new Drupal group related to DITA XML-based documentation:

DITA Tech Comm CMS
https://groups.drupal.org/dita-tech-comm-cms

I'm posting this announcement here because the group is still pending moderation and therefore doesn't show yet in the list of new groups. Please join if you are interested in combining DITA and Drupal.

Kind regards,
Frank

OASIS DITA TC: RFP for dita.xml.org site (currently Drupal-based)

Hi,

the OASIS DITA technical committees have published a RFP for their official website "to put more DITA in dita.xml.org". The site is currently powered by Drupal (6?).

"The Drupal implementation for dita.xml.org has been a long-standing source of pain, and we want to redo the site in early 2015," they write. Shouldn't that be a challenge for the Drupal community and/or some of the larger Drupal companies to prove them wrong?

This Month in Drupal Documentation

Introducing... This Month in Drupal Documentation (TMIDD)

Similar to "This Week in Drupal Core", the relatively new Documentation Working Group (DocWG) is trying out a new communication strategy: an approximately monthly post on what is happening in Drupal Documentation. We'll be posting this both to the Core and Documentation groups on groups.drupal.org, and because it is posted to Core, comments will be disabled by policy.

Open Help Conference and Sprints

Start: 
2014-06-14 (All day) - 2014-06-18 (All day) America/Indiana/Indianapolis

The annual "Open Help" conference will be taking place in Cincinnati, Ohio, June 14-15, with sprints following June 16-18.

This is a gathering of people interested in documentation and support from across many open source projects. I haven't attended before, but I think it's supposed to be pretty good, and the format looks great (part of the day for sessions encouraging discussion; part of the day for just discussion).

See http://openhelpconference.com/ for more information. I might try to attend; anyone else?
