Thanks, Erik!
Is there a discussion forum where contributors can discuss documentation? I believe that,
like all things in technology, there should be a set of conventions that guide authors in
the use of common terms. e.g., Xen? Or Xen Project? Or XenServer?

Hello, All:

Hi Eric!

I'd like to contribute to the Cloudstack project documentation.

That's excellent!


What's the process for that? Is there a SIG? Are there guidelines or a style guide?

We use ReStructuredText to write our documentation and and readthedocs to display them.
Generally there are two ways to edit the documentation.

1) Edit it on GitHub. Go to any source file and press the 'Fork this project and edit the
file'. This method gives easy access, but it is harder to preview the result, and you are
stuck with the GitHub UI
2) Fork the project(s) and edit in your favorite editor. This requires that you have or learn
some basic git knowledge.

You can find the following repositories on GitHub:

Administration guide:
Installation guide:
Getting started:
Release notes:

As for guidelines and/or style guides I'm not sure we have any, I guess we are open for suggestions
