This board is for continuing the discussion around improving the documentation and general online presence for Xerte. Thanks to everyone who joined the meeting on 4th October - a recording of the discussion can be found here: Recording

In summary, we spoke about how the wider Xerte community could become more involved in the following areas:

A new website is in development that will be less text heavy than the current one and clearly highlight Xerte's qualities. It will include:
- Showcase of interesting and innovative projects
- Blog with posts on new developments as well as guest posts about the use of Xerte in various institutions
- FAQs - this will be an updated and much expanded version of those on the current website

There is much to be gained from working collaboratively on documentation. The following things were discussed:
- Carry out an audit of what exists and whether it can be improved – we know there is a lot that already exists but no easy way to access it
- Should documentation be credited to an author/organisation – how would this be done?
- New documentation to be created collaboratively on a community install
- PDFs vs. online guides

Volunteers are needed to test beta code prior to release. They would get access to an install for this and would need to report back issues on GitHub.

I will create a thread for further discussion of each of these areas. Please use these threads to volunteer to be involved in the work and add any ideas or ask any questions around each topic.
