Hi Fabian,,,

I suggest dividing contributors to groups and dividing the project to phases, it will help us to make more professional doc.

 For example:- 

* Odoo Experts Group:-  Persons who are Odoo experts and have an excellent business knowledge  (accounting & warehouse), they able to write a detailed doc.   // I think that you know them as you have prevois experience (last two memento Doc).

* Technical Writers Experts Group:- persons who have a good Odoo and business knowledge, Also has an excellent technical writing knowledge......they can be second project phase, they can review the document and finalize it.

what I said is a suggestion only to show what I mean by dividing us to groups,
but finally it's up to you and all contributors  :)

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.
