Aegir Documentation Project

This project aims to document the Aegir Hosting System. It uses mkdocs to build the site at http://docs.aegirproject.org. To get started contributing to this project, fork it on Github. Then install mkdocs and clone this repo:

# brew install python;               # For OSX users
# aptitude install python-pip        # For Debian/Ubuntu users
# pip install mkdocs
$ git clone https://github.com/aegir-project/documentation.git aegir-docs
$ cd aegir-docs
$ git remote add sandbox https://github.com/<username>/documentation.git
$ mkdocs serve

Your local aegir-docs site should now be available for browsing: http://127.0.0.1:8000/. When you find a typo, an error, unclear or missing explanations or instructions, hit ctrl-c, to stop the server, and start editing. Find the page you’d like to edit; everything is in the docs/ directory. Make your changes, commit and push them, and start a pull request:

$ git checkout -b fix_typo
$ ls -p docs/
index.md    install/    install.md  quick-start.md
$ vim docs/quick-start.md               # Add/edit/remove whatever you see fit. Be bold!
$ mkdocs build --clean; mkdocs serve    # Go check your changes. We’ll wait...
$ git diff                              # Make sure there aren’t any unintended changes.
diff --git a/docs/quick-start.md b/docs/quick-start.md
index 88f9974..e69de29 100644
...
$ git commit -am”Fixed typo.”           # Useful commit message are a good habit.
$ git push sandbox fix_typo

Visit your fork on Github and start a Pull Request. After we accept a pull request or two, we’ll probably invite you to join the project team, and thus grant you commit rights to the main documentation project.
