*** Mission statement by Martijn ***
Responsible for the Grok documentation. In part this is in the Plone
site, and in part it's maintained in SVN for the "official
We talk on grok-doc at zope.org
*** Delegation of responsibilty by Martijn ***
"So, I declare Sebastian Ware as leader of the documentation group. :)"
*** Comments by Sebastian ***
We bascially need help with:
- Official documentation (maintained in SVN)
- Community Tutorials and Howtos
*** How will I organise this? ***
I would like to have a list of editors who have credentials to edit
either the SVN repos (official docs) or the community docs (Manager at
the Plone site) or both.
I will post issues on grok-doc and if nobody claims an issue then I
will assign it round-robin-style to editors on the list. I'll post a
semiregular update of the list with current assignments.
Anybody who completes an assignment on time (set by the assigned
editor and subject to one revision) gets a gold star. When you reach a
certain number of gold stars, something great will happen. I'll get
back on that.
*** Main issues ***
1 Getting past the stage of discussing "How to do it" and getting
to the stage of "Actually doing it".
2 Getting people to commit to doing stuff.
3 Getting that stuff completed in a reasonable amount of times.
4 Giving recognition to those who make an effort.
*** If you don't like the way the work is organised ***
You have two choices...
a) send me a personal email with a suggestion
(I don't want us spending too much time discussing "how to do
b) organise a friendly mutiny and take over my responsibility
(No prestige in this on my part!)
