Percona wants to upgrade our documentation to improve its readability
and to make it more useful for you, our clients and partners. We are
so busy developing software and handling your needs that we have
trouble finishing all the documentation! We think you can help.
Helping us will give you a chance to interact closely with lead Perona
developers and learn more about Percona’s products as well as our
Tasks include talking to developers, writing text, and interacting
with an editor. (Andy Oram, our O’Reilly editor on the book High
Performance MySQL, will take on the volunteer role.) You should have
some understanding of MySQL and Percona’s extensions, and of way
XtraDB and XtraBackup work.
Documents we want to start with include:
* Product features (we made a start at
* Release notes
* Installation instructions for XtraBackup
Eventually we’ll also upgrade our user guides, a bigger job.
If this work intrigues you, please contact Andy Oram and
firstname.lastname@example.org. Andy has offered to coordinate efforts for free,
although we will pay him for professional editing.
