Re: [opensuse-project] Google's Season of Docs

OK, I'll be that guy ;)

I can see that the OpenSUSE docs need some love and care (and that even the
docs mailing list got shut down a little while ago :\ ). I've had some
experience with open source docs communities in the past. What needs to be done?


Most of openSUSE's current documentation is generated along side SUSE's so talking to SUSE's documentation team is probably the best starting point. As a result of this if you look at it tends to cover things that are in SLE very well but doesn't tend to cover areas outside that, for example there's a bunch of low hanging fruit in things like the Gnome User Guide could probably be extended to other desktops like KDE and there are probably a bunch of other features / things that we ship in openSUSE that aren't in SLE that could equally make there way into openSUSE's version of the documentation.

I usually read complaints about the bad state of openSUSE documentation.
Maybe we can use Season of Docs (the Google's equivalent to Summer of
Code) to fix some stuff.

I know we got no volunteers to organize participation of openSUSE in the
latest Google Summer of Code and I'm NOT volunteering to do that work
for GSoD. I'm just trying to be the spark that lights somebody else
enthusiasm. ;-)
