Technical Documentation Tasks for Hack-a-thons



This page lists suggested tasks for Hack-a-thons and Write-a-thons. Tasks listed here should be short, relatively easy to complete in a short time. If volunteers are interested in longer, more complicated tasks that can be a great opportunity to introduce them to Phabricator and to share information about workflows and ongoing projects. This is generally updated before upcoming hack-a-thons or edit-a-thons.

See Documentation/New technical writers for instructions on getting started.
