Subject: *DRAFT* Seeking CSS Review of Web Platform Docs

>Hi, folks-
>I've felt uneasy about sending this "call for review", and I think I've
>figured out why... I think we should first discuss how we are going to
>organize and track review from CSS folks, to make sure that it's
>systematic and actionable.
>Can we discuss this during the call today?
>Hi, folks-
>You may have heard of WebPlatform.org, our community-driven,
>multi-stakeholder effort to make a reusable, vendor-neutral "Wikipedia
>for Web Developers and Designers".
>We're still in alpha phase, but we have been focused on improving our
>CSS documentation, through the efforts of individuals in the community
>and representatives from the companies involved. We are now at the point
>where we would like to get review and sanity checks from CSS aficionados
>and experts. And where better to find them than on www-style?
>If you are willing to review even one page, that would be a great help.
>We welcome general comments, as well as comments on:
>* correctness and validity of information
>* completeness of information
>* usability and structure of articles (too much information? not enough?
>presented in the wrong order?)
>* general utility of presentation
>If you also find yourself correcting mistakes and even creating
>examples, tutorials, or articles... so much the better!
>If you are willing to participate in this review, please get in touch
>with Julee Burdekin (CCed), who will be coordinating the review to make
>sure that the right articles get the right amount and type of review.
>If you know others who would be willing to do this review, please feel
>free to pass this email along!
>After we incorporate your review and have solid docs, we will ask for a
>second round of review from the editors of the specification themselves,
>to make sure that we have captured the nuances of the features.
>Once the documentation is refined and polished, the main task will be
>updating it with new information and new technologies. At this point, it
>will be much easier to manage and to get help from spec editors and
>working groups in guiding doc development for emerging specs, which will
>in turn make it easier for you (and an even wider set of designers and
>developers) to be informed about these new technologies and to learn how
>to use them... and to provide feedback into the functionality.
>We are very excited by the prospect of having this active, living
>feedback loop, and we hope you can help us make it happen.
