I'm interested in writing user documentation to cover the basics of
That would be great! The documentation is one of our weak points.
What is the best format for creating this (HTML, some wiki
format, etc). It would mostly consist of text and screenshots to begin
We don't have much documentation yet, so you could start with whatever you
like. However the easiest would probably be the format of our current Wiki
(pmwiki, see markup description at ).
In the past I've written documentation for MuseScore (probably close to
half of the current manual). At MuseScore we initially did the
documentation over SVN using HTML, but later switched to wiki (since
SVN, HTML, and requesting permission were often barriers for writers).
I'm not up-to-date about the permissions on our Wiki, but for the long term,
I'm sure we could arrange something to give you editing rights on some
parts. Post your articles to the dev-list to begin with.
Along the way, I'm sure I'll need to ask questions about how parts of
Jitsi work. Should I ask these types of questions on the developer list,
the user list, or another location?
Either of the two lists are fine.
So far I've only tried Jitsi 1.0.
As the UI changed radically in the upcoming 2.0 (based on the 1.1
nightlies), I'd strongly suggest you take this as the base to avoid being
outdated within in a few weeks.
