Maintaining install docs et al on Meta


(Erlend Sogge Heggen) #1

Continuing the discussion from Unofficial community docs - learndiscourse.org:

Any chance you could begin maintaining your docs on GitHub on Meta instead?

  • At this point they’re fairly stable and won’t change often (last change 24 days ago)
  • It makes them all searchable, discoverable and easily linkable here on Meta
  • It would be a great help to the community docs initiative, as we pull from Meta only at this time.

You’d still keep a copy of the docs on GitHub since it needs to be locally available to developers cloning the source code, but the canonical docs would be on Meta, and you’d occasionally copy&paste changes from there to GitHub.

Any chance that might happen?

No, that would be going backwards, I want the point of truth for the install guide to be GitHub not here.

Was worth a shot :smiley:

I guess maybe we’ll try do something like this instead:

What do you think @fantasticfears? (I know you’re away on your trip so I’m not expecting a response any time soon :wink: )
