This section is where we keep a list of all the tasks that are available for people to work on. Join in! We have a few categories for you to choose from:
Desktop Help - The desktop help needs to be reviewed and updated for every release. There are lots of small topics to write and review.
Application Help - Does the documentation for your favorite application need to be rewritten or updated? You can write help for an entire app, or improve a work-in-progress.
Developer Docs - There are plenty of modules which need their developer documentation updated. These tasks are ideal for programmers who also like writing docs.
System Administration Help - The documentation team is starting a System Administrator's Guide for GNOME. You can help draft this new document.
If you prefer to look at existing known issues across categories instead:
User documentation issues for newcomers - Issues which should be easy to fix, good starting point for first time contributors.
Generic Bugs - Types of issues that go unreported and those that you can find yourself.
Is there anything I should read first?
Oh my, yes. Here's some pretty essential background reading for you:
