Since there is no guideline for this, won't it be better if userguide
and mozmanual write their own?
One of the biggest hurdle to most mozdev.org or mozilla.org contributor
is CVS. It would be nice if userguide and mozmanual would work
together to help host documentation from writers who do not maintain
their own Web pages. This way, writers don't have to learn CVS to do
The second hurdle to doc writers is a writer's worst fear: nobody is
going to read it. What I began documentation, constant feedbacks from
Brant L Gurganus and gerv help kept me going. It will help doc writers a
lot if there is a place where writers can ask for help and feedbacks.
I don't see much from docdocs.mozdev.org . Maybe userguide and mozmanual
can take over the project as a help center for doc writers?
