Connect with other writers

Audience: Writers who would like to contribute to the Fabric documentation.

This topic gives you general advice on how to contribute to one of the many language translations provided by Fabric.

In this topic, we’re going to cover:

Getting started

Before you make a documentation change, you might like to connect with other people working on the Fabric documentation. Your Linux Foundation account will give you access to many different resources to help you connect with other contributors to the documentation.

Once you have a Linux Foundation account, use any or all of the following mechanisms to connect with others.

Rocket chat

Hyperledger Fabric uses Rocket chat for interactive discussions on a variety of project topics.

  • Documentation channel

    You’ll find beginners and experts sharing information on the Fabric documentation. Read the conversation or ask a question on how to get started.

  • International languages channel

    A dedicated channel for general questions on international languages.

  • Japanese channel

    Read, discuss and share ideas related to the Japanese translation.

Documentation workgroup call

A great place to meet people working on documentation is the Documentation workgroup call. These are held twice every Friday at a time convenient for both Eastern and Western hemispheres. The agenda is published in advance, and there are minutes and recordings of each session. Find out more on the Documentation wiki.

Join a language translation workgroup

Each of the international languages has a welcoming workgroup that you are encouraged to join. View the list of international workgroups. See what your favorite workgroup is doing, and get connected with them. Each workgroup has a list of members and their contact information.

Other ways to connect

Hyperledger Fabric has many other collaboration mechanisms such as mailing lists, contributor meetings and maintainer meetings. Find out about these and more here.

Good luck getting started and thanks for your contribution.
