Re: User Documentation: Call for Contributorsby
Thanks everyone for the proposition.
So, for the next steps, we will:
- Write a Guidelines + How to Contribute document
- Setup a project to track tasks and contributors for every page: Copywriting > Proof Read > Published
- Launch the first version of the documentation online with draft documents as an example
We will work on that and send an update next week.

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:- Sample How-to (cook book-like docs):https://docs.google.com/document/d/1GtwnVF9zo6NT7NqMwwWq85C96fGuY8SScXW8Ok4hq5M/edit#heading=h.teahchhagxca- The mementos (to explain main concepts briefly):- Concept explanations:https://docs.google.com/document/d/1f13ZGY6LNBFLx5t9kpHSocDGrTP8Ri64A4NM8tpe9Ak/edit#heading=h.5j82mzy5dvq8If 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 repositorySo, let us know if you are ready to invest time contributing in a documentation project.Thanks,--Fabien
