Hi folks,

Thanks for the interest. I apologize for the delay in getting this workgroup started. I'm happy that there is strong interest in working on documentation and improving it for all users.

I will do my best to get the workgroup charter drafted this week and then open an interest list for initial workgroup members.

Luciano, I agree that rewriting asyncio docs and typing are helpful improvements and welcome your contributions to accessible and high quality docs.

Warmly,

Carol

I am also interested in helping with making Python's documentation

Yuri Selivanov's rewrite of the asyncio documentation was brilliant.
We need more of that.

My recent contribution to Python's doc doesn't compare with
Selivanov's awesome rewrite, but it involved reorganizing existing
documentation.

The typing module chapter in the library reference is comprehensive,
and the top 1/3 of it has good narrative explanations to the core
concepts. But the remaining 2/3 of the content is in a single section
titled "Classes, functions, and decorators" that covers more than 70
objects, and there's no apparent ordering.

With the help of Guido, I split that section in subsections, and
arranged the entries within the subsections by relevance to most
users—subjective, yes, but not too harmful if we made bad calls,
because now there are fewer entries per subsection.

Before:
https://docs.python.org/3.8/library/typing.html

After:
https://docs.python.org/3.10/library/typing.html

Cheers,

Luciano
