- Help new and experienced contributors locate roles and tasks that fit their skills and goals in contributing to the Drupal project
- Better document all the amazing things that the Drupal community does that make both the community and the project (code, documentation, etc.) so strong.
We've created content types and views for the new guide, and we're ready to migrate and create the content! We have several tasks to work on:
- We are organizing the work on the new Contributor Guide around "Contribution Areas". There are a few that are ready for some specific writing/editing/content migration attention (see the individual issues for more details and tasks to do):
- Add details to skills pages (great task for someone less familiar with contributing to the Drupal project!). These pages list skills that contributors need. The pages exist, but they need details added to describe the skills and provide resources for learning/improving. Learn more about this task.
- Migrate existing Getting Involved Guide content into the new format (great task with someone who has contributed time to the project in the past). This task involves taking a page in the old Getting Involved Guide, figuring out how its content fits into the new content structure, and making one or more new pages with that content. Some pages, such as the "Contributor Tasks" in Getting Involved, are fairly straightforward to migrate; others will require more thought. Learn more about this task.
You are welcome to work on these tasks during the official DrupalCon contribution day on July 17, 2020 -- or at any other time. People who volunteer to act as mentors on July 17 for this project should create an Event here, listing the times they will be available. You can ask questions and get help with these tasks in the #documentation channel on Drupal Slack. Read more about how to use Drupal Slack.
