Wanna help out on wiki.php.net?

Recently I have devoting my attention towards other projects like djtechtools.com and un-informed.org/un-i.org away from php.net. That is not to say I have stopped following whats going on or that I do not care anymore. Its just that I feel that I can make more of a difference in these other projects. Also it might just be sort of a phase thing. I am sure one day I will become focused on php.net stuff again. Until then I hope others will pick up the slack and make sure that PDO gets love, at people diligently follow up on todo items mentioned on internals and that someone else picks up wiki.php.net and takes care of some regular maintenance stuff. Like there is a new version of dokuwiki out that fixes some issues, adds some features and adds PHP 5.3 support. If you are interested drop me a line or submit a comment. Who ever sticks around for a while and gives the wiki some love will obviously get commit access with that ever so shiny @php.net email alias.

Hi Lukas,

I'd never pass up an opportunity to give back something to the PHP community.

I might not be the most experienced PHP developer around (hardly 1.5 years) but I'd love to help you in any way I can to maintain the wiki.

Please let me know if I can be of some use to the PHP community.

Regards,
Amit

@Amit: I have send you an email.

@Duo: You of course as well have an email :)

Hi Lukas,

Let me know how I can help, like Amit I only have a few years experience but I'd love to be able to contribute in some way.

Thanks,
Stuart

Hi Lukas

I would like to get involved in this project. I have a 3 years experience in working with PHP and I would be glad to offer a helping hand to the PHP Community.

I look forward to your reply.

Yours sincerely,
Angelo

@Angelo: Amit and Duo are taking a stab at this for now. I think 2 people for this is more than enough.

However if you are really motivated to help out php.net, I am sure we can find something else for you. Be it documentation, writing tests or something else. Anything specific you are interested in? Otherwise I can ask around if there some area where we might need some help. I think there are some tools currently being developed to help the release manager with merge tracking. Maybe that could be something for you?

Re: Wanna help out on wiki.php.net?

I am interested in programming, but I can also write documentations or perform tests.

Re: Wanna help out on wiki.php.net?

All the wiki needs is someone to manage our patches while updating the wiki codebase, right? Not the most enjoyable task, but nice to see people eager to do it. Writing a php.net specific plugin or two might be fun... like for RFCs.

As for writing (and translating) documentation, this never ending task is always looking for volunteers. See also: php.net/dochowto
