OK I’ve created a GitHub wiki: https://github.com/fastai/docs/wiki . You can clone or fork it from
https://github.com/fastai/docs.wiki.git and contribute a PR in the usual way.
This is an experiment. I don’t know if this will end up better or worse than the existing mediawiki approach. I’m hoping that the benefits of GH might be:
- We can easily add contributors, but if any turn out to cause problems, we can easily undo their commits
- We can edit on our own computers in our preferred editors for longer work, or edit directly in GH for quick changes
- We can use the markdown files in the wiki to create official docs pages, by simply using a static site generator
I’m not sure the best way to add contributors - one approach is simply to see who is providing regular useful pull requests and give those people direct access. I’ll seed it for now with a few contributors I’ll select from here, so if you’ve been a somewhat regular forum contributor or have written a post that I’ve featured in class, and are willing to contribute to this documentation project, please PM me your GH username. If I add you as a contributor, you’ll get an invite email from GH letting you know (and if you don’t get that invite, please don’t be offended - I’ll start small and we’ll add more contributors over time as more PRs come in )
We can then think about how to structure and project manage this…
