Dev-doc-needed bugs and documentation requests [Oct 1st, 2015]

 ### What are Dev-doc-needed bugs? ###

One of the main ways the MDN writing team gets requests for new docs is
through Bugzilla. We get requests in two different ways:

* "dev-doc-needed": When the bug add new features, or modify existing one
that need documentation on MDN, the "dev-doc-needed" keyword is added to
the relevant bug(s). We often abbreviate "dev-doc-needed" to "DDN=E2=80=9D.=
 And we
got a notification when such a bug is resolved.

* Documentation requests: when someone notices that docs are wrong, or
incomplete, they can file bugs in Bugzilla to fix them.[
https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/form.doc ]

### MDN writing triage ###

 Every week, on Tuesdays at 17.30 UTC, the writing team triages all new
DDNs and all new documentation requests. The triage meeting is public: we
haven't done a very good job of publicising it lately, but will do better
in future. In triage, we assign DDNs and doc requests to the people in the
meeting.

### How you can help ###

We're better at keeping up with docs requests than we used to be, but we
could really use some help!

So starting this week: after each triage meeting we'll publish a list of
all the bugs that were discussed in the meeting. Each entry will contain a
link to the bug in Bugzilla, and the name of the person we assigned the bug
to. If you see a bug on the list that you'd like to document, please
contact the person we assigned the bug to, and they will help you figure
out how to update the docs on MDN.

*.dev = docs/dev/*.pod ??
Hi all, I've been reading through some of the pdd's and have noticed mention of *.dev files for actual implementation of features. I'm fairly sure these are actually the pod files under docs/dev, but I just wanted to make sure of this before I make the pdd's point to the files in this directory instead of the *.dev files.

Merging dev-gaia and dev-b2g into dev-fxos
--001a113ce93ebce35d051e4c0c73 Content-Type: text/plain; charset=UTF-8 Hello people of Firefox OS, After a discussion we have decided that the distinction between dev-gaia and dev-b2g mailing lists is not enough to warrant maintaining two lists. So we are deprecating both in favor of dev-fxos. So if you are subscribed to one of the aforementioned lists, you will be subscribed to the new dev-fxos list and we will shortly be decommissioning dev-gaia and dev-b2g. Thanks!

Consolidating dev-webapi into dev-platform after Friday (2015-06-19)
Unless you have serious objections, I'm going to request that dev-webapi redirects to dev-platform as of this coming Saturday at 00:00. A few people have pointed out that having the split mailing list is causing confusion about where to send emails and the traffic level doesn't seem to me to justify its continued existence. ...
