Great to have you on board, Monsur!
I'm a big fan of your site.

Wow, thanks Monsur!

Yes, we really could use your help! Dave Gash has just started working on the XHR pages, and we had it in our notes to include the CORS bits as well.

Working on API docs here requires a little homework first. Please read the guide to creating API docs<http://docs.webplatform.org/wiki/WPD:Creating_API_pages>. It describes how to organize a doc page so that it fits in the hierarchy as well as how to fill in the various forms in the pages.

If you have any questions, please send them to public-webplatform@w3.org<mailto:public-webplatform@w3.org>, either Dave or I will be available to answer.

Hi there.  I just ran across the blog post and wanted to express
interest in helping with the "XHR" section of the site. I help maintain
the enable-cors.org<http://enable-cors.org> <http://enable-cors.org> site, and have often

thought that the CORS stuff would be better suited to the WPD's wiki
model. Let me know how I can help!

Welcome! Of course I know about enable-cors.org... thanks for doing that!

I'm really eager to have ubiquitous APIs like XHR well-documented on WPD. Scott Rowe is our API lead, so you should check with him to coordinate on it, but I think you should just create an account and start editing! Let us know if you need help learning the template system, etc.

Please consider adding CORS info as well... sites like yours are really valuable, but it's also great to have at least the basics in someplace like WPD.
