Before I begin, I should apologise for being "disappeared" for months - being super busy on my personal life.
There are some different places for Mailman project. I am writing this just to help you GSoD candidates understand the documents Mailman using, please correct me if I understand wrong.
ReadTheDocs: The main purpose is for project users, and the pages are generated when pushing to master. There are several sites about Mailman for different projects:
- http://docs.mailman3.org/en/latest/ or https://gnu-mailman.readthedocs.io/en/latest/ - this is for Mailman Suite, quite confusing right?
- If you are going to modify any of them, you will need to submit a merge request on GitLab.
wiki.list.org: This is a community-driven wiki site for the mailman project. I would say most contents are for Mailman 2 but not the latest one.
- If you are going to modify this, you will need to apply for permission. See the front page for instruction.
For candidates, I would actually recommend you to install a full set of Mailman 3 to know what this project is (though not required). Here (http://docs.mailman3.org/en/latest/devsetup.html) is a contribution guide for developers, which I think is also suitable for tech writers.
Before you write your proposal, please make sure you read the instruction very carefully, including the GSoD official site and https://wiki.list.org/DEV/SeasonOfDocs2019 .
Good luck candidates and wish you enjoy the process :)
BTW: Mailman is already accepted by GSoD so the wiki page needs some update - I have the permission but maybe I should leave it to admins.
