MDN/Archives/Get involved/Doc Sprints/2011August
This will be primarily a virtual (online) sprint, with no centralized in-person meet-up. You are encouraged to organize a local meet-up of doc sprinters in your area.
- Start: 12 August, 14:00 UTC (7:00am US PT, 10:00am US ET, 16:00 CET)
- End: 13 August, 23:59 UTC (5:00pm US PT, 8:00pm US ET, 2:00 14 April CET)
You are welcome to start earlier or continue later, but this time frame is when you are likely to find other people online working on MDN. Obviously, you do not have to participate the entire time; drop in when it's convenient, and sleep when you need to.
Here is a schedule for meetings in IRC during the sprint:
|Fri 14:00||Fri 16:00||Fri 7:00 am||Kick-off|
|Fri 20:00||Fri 22:00||Fri 1:00 pm||status check|

Some places to get ideas of things to write about:
- MDN documentation wishlist
- Notes on dev-doc-needed bugs
- Fill out browser compatibility tables on reference pages where they exist, based on info from caniuse.com and quirksmode.org.
- Pages that need technical review.
- Pages that need editorial review
- David Bruant's TODO list (mostly JS-related stuffs)
Suggest a topic, either that you want to work on, or that you'd like to see done by someone.
