Be part of the new mobile OS from Mozilla!
You are invited to hack on the Mozilla Support wiki with us as part of the Firefox OS Apps Days. Yes, this support website is a wiki!
Our goal is to have 10 additional contributors to the English support wiki for Firefox OS.
To participate virtually:
- Get the Firefox OS simulator addon here: https://addons.mozilla.org/en-US/firefox/addon/firefox-os-simulator/
- Try out the Firefox OS smartphone apps and features and pick something you like to document.
- Log in and create a new help article here: https://support.mozilla.org/kb/create-new-knowledge-base-article
It can be just a simple 3-step article (we want small articles for easy use on a mobile phone). Here is a sample article: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/kb/add-contact-firefox-os
Click, then cut & paste the sample wiki text into your new article and change the wording for your procedure.
Here are some of the Firefox OS apps that need documentation:
Gallery Video Utility tray Browser Developer settings
We also have a list of existing Firefox OS articles that need more changes: https://support.mozilla.org/en-US/contributors/need-changes
We also have a lot of little articles in-progress that could use your contribution!
The goal is to have 30 contributors submit articles or edits to the knowledge base wiki every day, instead of the usual 20, will you be one of us?!
UPDATE: We reached our goal with 32 contributors to the KB on Jan 31st! Thanks to every new Firefox OS KB contributor: mandel, feer56, satdav, hermina_condei, zombie, expresssive, tjovanovic, and iNerd, rnewman, ariestiyansyah, yalam96!
We'd love to have your participation in this worldwide event *we've extended through the end of February, 2013* to create great support articles for the [Geeksphone Keon and Paek smartphones powered by Firefox OS] developer preview users.
