Help us improve the documentation!

Posted on:

A piece of software is only as good as its documentation. The Zend Framework team and a dozen or so contributors are working hard to improve the Zend Framework 2 documentation, but we still want you to help us improve it even more. Any kind of help is welcome and greatly appreciated.

First of all, you don't have to have a major in English literature to help us with the documentation. We, the contributors, come from all over the world and many of us use English as a second — or even third! — language, but that does not stop us from trying to improve the docs. Neither should it stop you.

We are not asking for much. Read a chapter or two, or even just a paragraph. Point us to parts of the documentation that are confusing, unclear, or not explained well enough. Would it be easier for you to understand a section if we would add a picture or two? Tell us. Do you want to see more code examples? Let us know. Pick a component that you use most often and work with the contributors to have the documentation for that component as clear as possible. Have something to add? Send a pull request.

We all learn in different ways, and while some documentation might be good for one developer, it might be confusing for another. That's why we are striving to have several different ways of presenting the material: reference manual, tutorials, user guides, API docs. Let us know what works best for you and we will do our best to make it happen.

We would like to ask you one thing, though. Any and all problems, requests, ideas you have that can help us improve the documentation, please report them on the documentation issue tracker on Github. Thanks!

Zend Framework 1 is Migrating to Git!

Posted on:

Since its inception, Zend Framework 1 has used Subversion for versioning. However, as we approach its end-of-life (which will occur 12-18 months from the time this post is written), and as our experience with ZF2 processes becomes more familiar, we -- the Zend team and the Community Review team -- feel that we can better support ZF1 via GitHub.

As such, we will be migrating the ZF1 Subversion repository to GitHub this week. Please read on for details!
