Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2350) Finish move of the wiki documentation; clean up references in docs.couchdb.org
Date Sat, 04 Oct 2014 02:19:34 GMT

Javier Candeira commented on COUCHDB-2350:
------------------------------------------

Hi Joan, thanks for the quick reply. Sure, I don't want to be a bull in a china shop. It's
just that the particular pages I was looking at happened to be un-updated:

https://cwiki.apache.org/confluence/display/COUCHDB/Ubuntu
https://wiki.apache.org/couchdb/Installing_on_Ubuntu

In this particular instance, Precise is a LTS still used in production in a shop I work at,
so it's not old or outdated information.

I'm writing to the mailing list with my plan beyond this issue, and I'll make sure I chat
with Andy.

> It occurs to me that as a new inductee into the project I'm in a privileged position
to update and restructure the documentation as I take the project in, and it would probably
be a better first task than to go after individual bugs.
> This is how I'd go about working on restructuring the documentation:
> - move the old wiki content to confluence and 301 all wiki.apache.org pages to the new
wiki. No new content added. 
> - track all links and references to old wiki in docs.couchdb.org, and rewrite them to
point at new wiki. Still no new content added.
> - then I would start triaging documentation bugs. There are many tasks that are better
done by a newcomer, since we need to follow the documentation or be confused by it.
> This is what I'd need:
> - To be added to the confluence wiki contributors list (username: candeira)
> - To be added to the old wiki contributors list (username: JavierCandeira)
> - Optionally, to have a test confluence wiki so I can test migrating the old one to the
new one via scripts without making public changes until bugs have been ironed out.
