Subject [jira] [Commented] (COUCHDB-2350) Finish move of the wiki documentation; clean up references in
Date Fri, 10 Oct 2014 08:54:34 GMT


Andy Wenk commented on COUCHDB-2350:

[~candeira] thanks a lot for the spreadsheet. I understand why you want to remove these pages
(rows 6,7,8 and so on) - because they shouldn't be editable by users. I don't think that way.
As this is an Open Source project, every contributor is allowed to edit these contents. We
do not have any restrictions on who should be able to edit. If you ask for an wiki account,
you will get the account without any questions. All this is based on trust.

So for me, these pages should be moved away if the context is wrong, but not because they
shouldn't be editable by any user. 

Now, I would like to add comments - what is the best way to do so in the spreadsheet?

Thanks a gain for your huge contributions :)

> 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 pages to the new
wiki. No new content added. 
> - track all links and references to old wiki in, 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.
