Re: contributing to Apache

R Shekari
Hey Peter,

Thank you for the reply. I think as of now a good place to start is
documentation. Is there an area I can start? I am going to take a look
again at the Apache website.

Take care,
Ramtin

Re: contributing to Apache

Peter Kovacs-3
There is no reason to apologize. It is all fine good. We have the tool
for communicating. Which is very important to do.

Where are you looking at? https://wiki.openoffice.org is our Mediawiki.
( short Mwiki).

We have also a Confluence Wiki (short Cwiki)

We have a static Webside.


I am not aware that we have a plan where to go. So maybe start with
making a plan and introduce it to us on the dev Mailiing list (short: @dev)

Or does anyone have a plan what there is to do with the Documentation?
(Except the technical migration see other thread: [1] and [2]


All the Best

Peter
