So now we know where the docs are, let's first clear some of the myths
Scaling: The power of Community
Community is the force multiplier.
You are the community.
We are a friendly and welcoming community.
Development Process: Types of review
Whatever your skill set, you can help with at least one of these:
One thing I think is often overlooked here is that you don't need to be a programmers, or have any understanding of the internals to do a functional or documentation review.
We know the "how to review" parts of Ansible's Docs need some work, what would you like to see there? - give comments in Chat or join in #ansible-community
I accept some of this is subjective, so we are looking for a net improvement
Working Groups: Purpose
Are you willing to help advance the thing that is obviously stuck and needs people united in order to get unstuck
Focused effort on a specific topic
Help build communities
Allows people closer to the technology to set direction
Make Ansible do what
you want, solve your challenges Empowers
We've mentioned this a few times, but what are they?
Distributed across the globe, like Ansible's Core Team
We are looking for people interested in making/helping build communities around technologies, as Ansible is huge, it's impossible to leave this up to one person, or a core Ansible team
