@hankuoffroad since there are several discussions, tickets and Matrix conversations about the “How to make casual contributions” guide, I open a topic here to get some consolidation and some possibilities for an “overall discussion” but also for external incentives.
For the community, we were looking for some incentives about how and where to improve the guide, and where issues are in terms of comprehensibility. Any incentive is appreciated. @hankuoffroad already updated the guide to more current needs and introduced a more appropriate approach because the last approach does no longer fit the current GitLab UI. However, we still lack feedback from people who actually use the guide, and for whom the guide is finally intended for, which also leads to the question of who/if the audience is, and how to tailor to/reach them (the audience discussion is interrelated with a parallel discussion, see the link below).
The guide: https://docs.fedoraproject.org/en-US/fedora-docs/contributing-docs/tools-gitlab-howto/
The recent update: a) Contributor guide update for GitLab documentation (!91) · Merge requests · fedora / Fedora Docs / Community and Tools Documentation / Documentation Contributors Guide · GitLab
b) Style change (!92) · Merge requests · fedora / Fedora Docs / Community and Tools Documentation / Documentation Contributors Guide · GitLab
Related discussion that refers to the role of the guide and its potential audience: How to PASSIVELY let users know THAT and WHAT they can contribute?
Obviously, audience and content are related (the later might be tailored to the first).
