Documentation processes

The MDN documentation project is enormous; there are a vast number of technologies we cover through the assistance of hundreds of contributors from across the world. To help us bring order to chaos, we have standard processes to follow when working on specific documentation-related tasks. Here you'll find guides to those processes.

Browser-specific information resources
This article lists the tools and information sources for each of the major browsers that are helpful when writing documentation for or contributing compatibility data to MDN.
Cross-team collaboration tactics for documentation
One thing that we've learned at MDN is that when the development team and the documentation team for a given project, API, or technology work closely—and well—together, the documentation quality is incredible. This guide offers some suggested tactics for how the developers and writers can work hand-in-hand.
Documentation projects
The MDN community sometimes is tasked with large documentation projects—that is, large amounts of documentation to be written or edited about a specific topic, or a large maintenance project to existing content.
Matching web features to browser release version numbers
This article provides tips and pointers to help you figure out which version of each major browser introduced a given feature, and when it was enabled by default.
Requesting elevated privileges
Some tools or operations on MDN require elevated access privileges not available to ordinary users.
