| `doc/legal/` | Legal documents about contributing to GitLab. |
| `doc/install/`| Probably the most visited directory, since `installation.md` is there. Ideally this should go under `doc/administration/`, but it's best to leave it as-is in order to avoid confusion (still debated though). |
| `doc/update/` | Same with `doc/install/`. Should be under `administration/`, but this is a well known location, better leave as-is, at least for now. |

# Writing Documentation
- **General Documentation**: written by the developers responsible by creating features. Should be submitted in the same merge request containing code. Feature proposals (by GitLab contributors) should also be accompanied by its respective documentation. They can be later improved by PMs and Technical Writers.
- **Documentation Articles**: written by any GitLab Team member, GitLab contributors, or Community Writers.
- **Technical Articles**: written by any GitLab Team member, GitLab contributors, or Community Writers.
- **Indexes per topic**: initially prepared by the Technical Writing Team, and kept up-to-date by developers and PMs, in the same merge request containing code.
