(!) ?Discussion


Infrastructure

Most of the stuff regarding webmaster work is described at the aforementioned web site and all prospective editors are highly recommended to read it.

Interacting with the team

Usual roles

All work is shared in two teams:

  • people in the debwww group - particular webmaster-only stuff
  • people in the webwml salsa project - everything reachable via webwml git

The members of the webwml project in salsa do the bulk of the editing. The debwww Unix group handles the bits necessary for webwml to propagate onto the web site, CGI scripts, and similar intricate details.

You can request git commit access through the salsa project, if you did not have commit access before the move to salsa, please ask on the mailing list with a reasoning.

Get involved

Even if you don't see yourself in the above mentioned skills, you still can help the web team in various ways: People working on the content of specific subparts (like events pages, users or consultants subareas) are also very welcome.
