MDN/Archives/Get involved/Doc Sprints/2012September
This sprint will have in-person meetings as well as remote participation.
- The in-person location will be the Mozilla office in London
- Remote participation is welcome
- Coordinate via #devmo on irc.mozilla.org for both in-person and online participants.
- Ad-hoc notes at http://etherpad.mozilla.org:/MDNdocsprint-London2012
Some topic areas where MDN needs more content:
- Firefox for developers (see the MDN doc tracker)
- We need help to have these up-to-date with all the relevant information. Not only the latest ones but also older ones.
The classical open web tasks:
- CSS: several articles of the form "Using the..." are needed. Please coordinate with Jean-Yves
- a basic tutorial (but really basic, for complete beginners),
- several articles on how to use some HTML5 features (like how to use the semantic text element: what's the difference between <b><dfn><strong><em>, ...),
- HTML5 Microdata
- Update to the HTML5 Content categories article (palpable content!) https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/HTML/Content_categories; update the schema at the top (with palpable content too). Creates template so that we can get the relevant information when hovering over the term in other pages.
- we need to redesign the HTML reference page and to make them closer to the one of the CSS reference (Removing the Christmas tree we have right now).
- Please coordinate with Jean-Yves.
- Review, complete some DOM API to be sure they are up-to-date with latest standard/implementation: Geolocation API, Page Visibility API, ...
Not an exhaustive list: if you have other ideas, you're welcome.
The following are the times when in-person sprinters are going to be working. Remote sprinters are welcome to work outside these hours, whenever is convenient in your time zone.
