Perl 6 documentation: Season of Doc ideas


This is a repository with ideas about Perl 6 documentation for Google Season of Docs. These must be focused on a single project, and in principle there will be a single mentor for the chosen persons or persons.

JJ Merelo is already the main contributor to Perl 6 documentation and has been contributing to it for around 18 months. However, initially the chosen person will be working via pull requests, and there are many persons with permission to review and merge those pull requests, so it is going to be more of a distributed effort.

Two ideas have been proposed for this:

Additionally, another general idea is to simply work in the outstanding issues in the documentation repository. These issues include from errors and improvements, through the big issues indicated above, to tooling problems or improvements. They are well structured and labeled, so just generally addressing and eventually closing them would be a nice improvement to the Perl 6 documentation. During season of docs one or several Squashathons devoted to documentation will take place. The person(s) would be expected to help organize them, as well as work and collaborate with them.
