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.
- 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 issues
- There are a couple of ways to notify the MDN content team about changes that are needed in documentation, or about new documentation that is needed. This article describes how documentation issues are handled in Bugzilla and GitHub, and how to help work on existing requests.
- 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.
- Locating browser-specific information
- This article provides tips and pointers to help you locate browser-specific information—including when a feature was added—for the major browsers, where such information is available.
- MDN's agile process
- The MDN staff team applies an agile process to prioritize and manage projects and tasks, for development of both MDN's content and its platform software (Kuma). The formalized framework that the MDN team's process most closely resembles is Scrum, with modifications to support both content and software development, within the context of Mozilla's Marketing department and its priorities.
- Requesting elevated privileges
- Some tools or operations on MDN require elevated access privileges not available to ordinary users.
