Technical Documentation Tasks for Hack-a-thons


This page lists suggested tasks for Hack-a-thons and Write-a-thons. Tasks listed here should be short, relatively easy to complete in a short time. If volunteers are interested in longer, more complicated tasks that can be a great opportunity to introduce them to Phabricator and to share information about workflows and ongoing projects.
