The elementary documentation weekend!
Ladies and Gentlemen,
If you haven't heard already, we are doing a documentation
weekend/sprint from November 8th to November 10th.
*What is the sprint/weekend about?*
Write documentation about anything that is related to elementary! Here
is an example of what we mean. We need both development
documentation as well as user-oriented stuff.
In fact, we hope that we can integrate a lot of the written stuff into
the User Guide/Developer Section.
*Who can attend?*
*I have a new idea*
If you found something else that you would like to have some
documentation about, just add it to  (anyone can edit this
*Do I need to use any special software?*
You can use whatever you want. I recommend Google Docs and similar
services but you can also just use a text editor and www.pastebin.com.
Either way, just make sure that you add yourself to the document 
or mail your entry to this thread in the mailing list.
*Under what license am I supposed to release my documentation?*
CC-BY, read this for more information:
To license your work you need to add this note to the end of the
document (see  for an example):
This work is licensed under a CC-BY-license, for more information see
It's important that you apply this license to your document so that we
can integrate it into the User Guide, so please don't forget about it.
*Any questions left?*
You can reply to this email or you use IRC via our webchat (
http://elementaryos.org/developer/chat ). You're obviously free to
fire up your IRC client and connect to: irc.freenode.net and join
#elementary-dev. We will probably not answer instantly, so be patient.
Alternatively, you can ping me personally using my nickname teemperor
(Munchor also enjoys being pinged all day long).
