Hi Teo,

I have just entered the Freenode #xendocday chatroom.

I will likely return and be ready to collaborate in the morning.

I will be in the chat for another hour or so.

It is now past 11pm here on Sunday night still the 25th here!

Hope to see you on IRC! Feel free to add stuff to the TODO list

* Xen Documentation Day: March 26th *

We have another Xen document day come up next Monday. Xen Document Days
are for people who care about Xen Documentation and want to improve it. We
introduced Documentation Days, because working on documentation in parallel
with like minded-people, is just more fun than working alone! Everybody who
can contribute is welcome to join!

For a list of items that need work, check out the community maintained
TODO list (http://wiki.xen.org/wiki/Xen_Document_Days#TODO). Of course, you
can work on anything you like: the list just provides suggestions.

How do I participate?

- Join us on IRC: freenode channel #xendocday
- Tell people what you intend to work on (to avoid doing something
else is already working on)
- Fix some documentation
- Help others
- And above all: have fun!

Interesting items on the TODO list
I just went through our community maintained Docs Day TODO list and
thought I’d
highlight some items:
- A feature status document that shows which features work in which Xen
That would be something for our developers to create!
- Admin docs covering topics such as “Setting boot order for domUs (PV and
“Chaining pypxeboot and pygrub”, etc. Any proficient Xen user can help put
these together!
- Reviewing Wiki main page categories such as Beginners could really
benefit from
YOUR input. It would help to see whether the documents in a category are
to YOU and which ones should be highlighted in a trail.
- There is also some easy Wiki maintenance work that needs doing: some of
it is as
easy as formatting. Anybody who knows could do this!

Personally, I will be working on:
- A new “Why Xen” and maybe “Which Xen” document, to help people decide
whether Xen is
for them and what flavour of Xen is best
- I will also be working on content for the new xen.org website

I am looking forward to the day and hopefully documentation days will
become a regular Xen event. See you on IRC!
