Help wanted

Please share documentation bugs that need work, or other things where you need short-term help.

Bugs Ahoy

Jsx set up "Bugs Ahoy" to display mentored documentation bugs. These are easy or average documentation tasks.

Easy: All :

If you are interested in one of them, request in it to be put as 'Assigned". You can needinfo/ the mentor listed in it for any question you have.

We add new bugs there on a weekly basis.

"Document all the interfaces" project

For 2016, we have a plan to have all Web API documented (the interfaces at least, not necessarily every methods and properties).

We have a list of missing interfaces:

This is an intermediate-level work, so if you are interested in helping teoli can assign you some interfaces. Please do make contact before starting to work on anything — we would like to avoid duplication of effort.

Request in the meta bug:

Learning area

  • Chris has taken over the mantle from Jeremie. I am your god now! /jk
  • I have started reviewing current material, and making plans for what needs to be done next
  • See the Mozilla Curriculum Team plan for more information.
  • This is part of the overarching Mozilla curriculum project; my team on this also includes Emma from participation and Steph from Mozilla science lab, allowing us to work out what content needs we have outside MDN's scope, where they can be hosted, etc.
  • Participation welcome!
  • Feedback also wanted; most pressing ones right now are:

Removing HTML4/5 badges and decorations

Is there anything keeping you from making progress?

What are you working on?

Please share recent accomplishments, and goals you have for the next few weeks.

[Chris Mills]

  • See above! Mainly learning area
  • Also working out what to do about Firefox OS and associated content (e.g. Marketplace), in light of the FxOS/connected devices reshuffle.
    • Marketplace looks to be shutting down gradually
    • They are already removing desktop/android as a distribution target, so the docs need to be updated in light of this. [ACTION, Chris: set up a bug for this]
    • Myk Melez keeping me updated on related happenings


  • Back to work next week


  • Attending the participation leadership summit in Singapore, along with Ali
  • As part of this trip, they are meeting with Mozilla Japan community members, to bolster MDN's community relations in Asia


  • Closed a lot of dev-doc-needed and give a hand to jsx' BugsAhoy by mentoring some more bugs
  • My goal in the next few weeks are:
    • to have more tasks ready to share with the community
