 Linux Documentation Project: Authors - Contribute / Help

Getting Started

The LDP is always looking for people to assist in the quest for developing and providing free, high quality documentation for the GNU/Linux operating system.

Potential volunteers should become familiar with the information contained in the LDP Author Guide (formerly known as the "HOWTO-HOWTO"). They should also consider joining the general LDP discussion list (discuss@en.tldp.org). Let us know what your skill set is, what you would like to help the LDP with, etc. We are always in need of volunteers!


Tasks

If you wish to volunteer to assist in the document authoring process, here are some tasks that require attention:

  • Provide markup assistance for various documents.

  • Become an owner for these (currently) unmaintained documents.

  • Write a new HOWTO, FAQ or Guide. Here is a list of documents that are "in progress".

  • You can also suggest a document (one that needs to be written, or included from some other source) that you believe should be part of the LDP collection.
