I’d like to create a document that is a Beginner’s Guide to Initiaives. This guide would use clear, concise language to explain what an Initiative is, how it’s used in SC, and how to create one.
It would also become one of multiple guides within the Getting Started Category.
Championed (In Progress)
Having a Beginner’s Guide to Initiatives would enable and empower beginners to get involved with the community, understand the larger values of the project by knowing how to explore existing Initiatives, and to create their own meaningful contributions right away by contributing to initiatives or creating their own.
This would also create a canonical understanding of what an initiative is and how it’s best used for the entire community at large. As well as a definitive place to look when the definition or procedure around an Initiative changes.
- Have a conversation with someone who fully understands the topic of initiatives to learn from and solidify MY understanding as a newb. (Completed)
- Use that understanding to create a rough draft of a guide. (Completed)
- Have knowledgeable folks review/edit the guide draft for accuracy and legibility to multiple audiences.
- Make revisions as necessary, and repeat review/editing process until an accurate final guide has been forged.
- Publish a finished Beginner’s Guide to Initiatives to the Getting Started Category.
This Initiative will create a ”Beginner’s Guide to Initiatives” that is accurate, concise, and easy for the layperson to understand. As well as a touchstone definition of initiatives for the whole community.
The Initiatives Artifact existing makes it possible to write a guide for that Artifact.
