As part of our effort to improve our documentation process, we now have a Bugzilla form that makes it easy to provide the proper information we need in order to handle a request for documentation. In addition to offering guidance as to how to fill out the form, fields that we don’t need (or need to have specific values) aren’t presented, and are handled automatically on your behalf.
If you find yourself often requesting the addition of (or changes to) documentation on MDN, you should seriously bookmark the new form:
The new form looks like this:
The Development Bug field lets you enter the bug number of a bug that should be blocked by this documentation request. That lets us monitor the development process as well as to locate people that may know more about the topic to be documented.
The Urgency field lets you indicate how quickly the documentation request would preferably be handled. The default is “No Rush,” but there are options to indicate that the docs are tied to a given stage on the release train, as well as an “Immediately” option for emergency documentation updates.
It’s important to note that we make no guarantees as to how quickly documentation will be written. There’s a lot to write, and there aren’t that many people to do the writing, so sometimes even important things will sit around and wait for a while.
