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 (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 or



  • 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)
