Documentation sprint

I thought it might be fun to have an impromptu documentation sprint at the September Jam. And if people are interested in participating I'll help to facilitate it. My thought is that we could work together to help with re-organization of content into thew new guides structure. @tvn has been working to the migration of content from one type to another, and for the guides that have been migrated the following tasks need to be done:

  • Locate/recruit a maintainer(s) for each guide
  • Review summary content for each page. Pages now have summaries that are used on listing pages, and many of them could use some love
  • Review content of the guide, identify what's missing, review order that topics are presented in to ensure they make sense

And probably more ... there's a good list here: https://www.drupal.org/drupalorg/docs/content/documentation#first-steps

In particular, I thought it could be fun to choose a guide that we might be interested in maintaing as a group. Then have one or more of us sign-on to do so. Then we could work together with the maintainer to help them resolve any issues they've identified in the content of their guide.

Or something like that. Thoughts?
