We think Odoo 9 deserves a clean user documentation. So, we started writing a user documentation based on upcoming Odoo 9. But it's a huge effort, so I wonder if some people from the community are ready to contribute to this project?

We plan to start by the accounting and WMS apps. Ideally, we'd like to have those apps fully documented for the Odoo 9 release. We are drafting the table of content and sample documentation pages that will serve as the basis for all docs.

Here is the a proposition of TOC for accounting: 

We started writing some sample pages as a proof of concept:
  - The mementos (to explain main concepts briefly):
  - Concept explanations:

If enough people are interested to contribute writing a great documentation for Odoo, we will create a project and a mailing list for all contributors and send you a how-to contribute.

The documentation will be:
- written exclusively in english (we don't plan to translate for now on)
- based on Odoo 9 Enterprise (but 90% of the doc will remain valid for Odoo 9 community)
- based on RST files, like the technical doc but in a separate repository

So, let us know if you are ready to invest time contributing in a documentation project.
