Improve contributor on-boarding experience
Currently, the contributor on-boarding experience is spread across multiple locations and doesn't include all useful information. This issue has been created to improve that experience so future & current contributors have information in one central location.
Tasks included in Phase 1 & 2 (Complete):
Create a new contributing section in the docs with detailed information as seen fit. https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/merge_requests/20682
contributor.mdmore concise https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/merge_requests/20682
Move the 'Code of Conduct' on about.gitlab.com/contributing to raise its importance edstub207/www-gitlab-com@deac13de
Keep current headers in the
CONTRIBUTING.mdfile since we link to those from various places. Their content should just be moved to the documentation and replaced with a link to it. https://gitlab.com/gitlab-org/gitlab-ce/merge_requests/20682
Tasks to be completed (Phase 3):
Improve links between
about.gitlab.com/contributing& new docs.
Add FAQ for contributors which can be updated easily with new info. EG: Should contributors @ mention full time Gitlabbers if so who?
Tasks created in original plan that are outstanding:
Add bullet points on the
Get started!docs page
Architecture of GitLabto the bottom of getting started or a new section
