We’re having an interesting discussion in #extdev at the moment about the state of the documentation, and I just want to remind people of this:
- If you go looking for something in the docs and can’t find it, please do something about it! At a minimum, file a bug against the documentation.
- Better yet, once you find an answer, or a page on another site that provides information, add a stub page to the documentation with your notes. It doesn’t even have to be real documentation. Just throw whatever information you find onto the page. Others will come along and clean it up and improve on it.
You don’t have to be a writer to help us make the documentation better. You just need to take a few minutes and share your knowledge. A simple, quick and dirty brain dump can lead to the addition of vast amounts of documentation.
The fact is that the hard part is figuring out what needs to be written. Once you get the ball rolling, you’ll find that things build up fast.
