Introduction

With several new Documentation Team members for 22.05 I'm planning on holding "office hours" each week - a regular, informal drop-in session. This could cover workflow, processes, and anything you would like to know (I might not always have answers!)

Join at https://meet.jit.si/KohaDocumentationTeam (Google Chrome or Chromium browsers supported, no installation required, access to camera and audio requested when you join). (Happy to use Zoom if people prefer).

Organiser: David Nind (contact on IRC or david.nind@gamil.com or david@davidnind.com)

Times

Notes:

  • If the times don't suit, let me know and I can reorganise.
  • Email me a david DOT nind AT gmail DOT com if you would like a session outside these times, we can sort out a mutually workable time!

Potential topics

Sessions will be informal - add anything you want to know about:

  • Any questions
  • Editing using the GitLab web interface - see [session slides and video]
  • Editing using a local Git repository and text editor (Git and editor setup)
  • Git commit messages
  • reStructuredText
  • Current structure of the manual
  • Images
  • Writing tips, style guide, content development guide

Things to do following sessions

Notes for me:

  • Create a more structured programme for learning how to contribute to the documentation:
    • Overview of the process (base of previous presentations by Chris, Katrin and Caroline)
    • Using GitLab for single and multiple changes
    • Using a local editor and copy of the repository (using Git for version control)
    • reStructuredText tutorial
    • Content development guide topics (styles, word list, processes, content types, and so on)
