If there was a github for the docs, we could start posting content to it for review. Not sure what the review/contribution process is on Apache. Google searches on apache documentation and similar run into lots of noise from actual projects.

I wouldn't mind trying to do a little doc work on the regular if there was a wiki, a proven means to do collaborative docs.

It’s just content for web pages.  There isn’t a working outline or any draft on any of the JIRA’s yet.  I like to keep things simple.  Did I miss something?  What does it matter right now?


Thanks Carl,

so... are those pages in the code tree of github? I don't see them or a directory structure under /doc. Is mirroring the documentation between the apache site and a github source a big issue?

I was debating that.  Splitting it up into smaller tasks makes each one seem less over-whelming.

Might help, organizationally, to put all these efforts under a single ticket of "Improve web site Documentation" and add these as sub-tasks Should be able to do that translation post-creation (i.e. in its current state) if that's something that makes sense to you.

These nine web pages on the Apache Cassandra web site have blank To Do sections.  Most of the web pages are completely blank.  Mind you there is a lot of hard work already done on the documentation.  I’ll make JIRA’s for any of the blank sections where there is not already a JIRA.  Then it will be on to writing up those sections.  If you have any text to help me get started for any of these sections that would be really cool.
