Documentation Working Group Agenda


This meeting is open to everyone. Just click the meeting link in the calendar above, then click the pencil icon in the upper left to update the meeting agenda wiki with any additional items you want to discuss that are docs-related.

We discuss topics related to Ansible project documentation and the tooling that publishes that documentation to While the meeting at times goes deeply into some topics, we welcome newcomers and new contributors and are always willing to explain what we are discussing to help you follow along on the topics.

Then use ^info to summarize what is discussed, and ^action for any action items proposed.

When the meeting is done:

  1. Find the meeting minutes autoposted to the Workflow and Logs category and adddocumentation tag.

Edited a few things to tie the agenda to the calendar entries and made them repeat weekly. So we will have one agenda wiki, and edit it as needed for the upcoming meeting.


I like what you’ve done here! Since it’s recurring at the same time every week I don’t think it needs to be on the Events calendar, but having the agenda easily accessible is key, and this looks great.

I’ve added a meeting tag which may be useful for people searching, or for us to generate some kind of aggregate page.

@felixfontein great to see you :slight_smile: - just so you know, you can edit the agenda directly (or should be able to!) as it’s set as a “wiki post”. I’ve added your agenda item up there, just in case :muscle:

Since we are opening up the DaWGs meeting ‘chair’ role to community members, this is a quick cheatsheet on how we run the meeting.

Primary commands:
!startmeeting DaWGs aka Documentation Working Group

@room Meeting time! Who is here to talk the docs?

Raise your ascii hand (o/) to say hi or any other way you want to let us know you are here. And Welcome to any new folks!

General run of the meeting - We go over action items, give docs updates… maybe have a topic or two, and go over doctooling updates (all the fun stuff behind the scenes that get us!)

From here, we set a new topic for major discussions or general updates that follow along the agenda above. We don’t always cover every item on the agenda - some of the ongoing items list are just reminders of unfinished work.
