[Bf-docboard] Manual Wiki Team Call

after some discussions in #blenderwiki, we want to propose the workflow
described below and make a call to build a proper Manual Wiki Team.
We need to see if we have enough people in each different role to start
publishing proposed pages at
So for those that are interested to partecipate, please just propose
yourself here or in #blenderwiki :)
For each chapter, we would like to cover the roles explained below.
These people have to have good understanding of Blender and
of the Wiki. They can edit, review and decide when a proposed
page is ready to go public. The decision should be based on
the quality of:
Apart from doing big changes in the Manual structure, a Reviewer
can work without asking permission about his actions, but he/she
takes responsibility for the manged chapter.
He has to keep good communication with the core of admins,
possibly in #blenderwiki, see
Right now the only Reviewers we have are the ones listed at:
We need to find more, but these will eventually come with time.
If someone with good wiki + blender skills is reading, just head up!
Roger and past wiki contributors come to mind, but feel free to talk.
These people can edit proposed pages and review them
but have to ask the reviewer for publishing.
These people can give good advice to editors and reviewers
on technical aspects of the documented features.
Developers can edit Manual pages without asking permission,
but if they prefer to do so, they can ask Reviewers or
Editors for help.
Modules owners and members are defined at:
Everyone can be a wiki writer, but if not an editor or more,
he/she can write in own User space and suggest own edits as
we do now.
* (Skilled Artists)
Also, it would fantastic to have skilled artists mentoring
editors and reviewers and giving suggestions about missing
parts and possible enhancements (probably too much to ask).
- Basically everyone is a Writer and can suggest edits in his/her own
- After some good work in wiki, a Writer can become an Editor, so that
he can review other people work, and help Reviewers to get pages published
- After some good work, Editors can become Reviewers.
- Reviewers can help Developers when these don't have time or enough
wiki skills to document own feature.
- Ideally a Reviewer manages his/her own chapter-team and can
potentially assign tasks to editors if he find some.
Basically we believe that establishing a good hierarchy and using
delegation well, we can distribute work and keep the Manual up to date
with less effort.
