Description Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2012-12-20 09:20:51 PST
Currently, developer documentation is tucked in among the wiki platform bugs in the "Mozilla Developer Network" product. This is negatively impacting our ability to organize documentation bugs. We need, therefore, to add a "Developer Documentation" product.

Product name: Developer Documentation
Classification: Other
Description: "Requests for new developer documentation or for corrections to existing developer documentation on the Mozilla Developer Network wiki (https://developer.mozilla.org/). Both open web and Mozilla-specific documentation are maintained here."
Components: APIs, HTML, CSS, JavaScript, DOM, Developer Tools, Mozilla Platform, Firefox OS, Add-ons, Other
Versions: Unspecified [we don't have "versions"]
Target milestones: [none]
Security groups: [does not apply]
Votes to confirm: [disabled]

Looks fairly straight forward. I will use the same flags as setup currently for Mozilla Developer Network as well. We will however need a brief description for each of the components as described here:

Awesome. I will get back to you with the component descriptions; there's been some debate raised over the list. :)
Comment 3 Eric Shepherd [:sheppy] 2012-12-20 10:11:09 PST
OK, the full list of components (for starters, anyway) and their descriptions:

APIs: Documentation for APIs for open technologies usable from Web content.

HTML: Documentation of HTML, HTML elements, and how to develop HTML content.

CSS: Documentation of CSS and how to style Web content.

JavaScript: Documentation of the JavaScript language, including both reference and usage guides.

DOM: Documentation of the Document Object Model, its interfaces, and how to use it from code.

Developer Tools: Documentation of Mozilla's developer tools.

Apps: Documentation for open Web app developers.

Mozilla Platform: Documentation of Mozilla technologies including Gecko, XPCOM, XUL, and so forth.

Firefox OS: Documentation for developing of and for Firefox OS.

Add-ons: Documentation for add-on developers (including extensions, plug-ins, and themes).

Other: If you're not sure how to categorize your request, put it here.

Named API instead as that is generally used.

Named General instead as that is generally used.

All done.
