Welcome to Metro.
At Salesforce, we have a number of document platforms. Like most companies, our needs for all our tooling, including docs, have evolved with our growth. For internal working info, we deploy content several ways: using GitHub Pages, Google Sites, Google Docs, Confluence, Quip, and who knows what else. Our engineering teams like the flexibility to write using their platform of choice. We like the idea of people writing and don't want to block that impulse.
Of course, not everything that's written inside is appropriate for a Saleforce-wide audience. For those topics that are, wouldn't it be great to have a tool that would migrate content to our enterprise content platform (Atlassian Confluence)? Of course it would! That's why we have Metro.
Metro is a tool originally written by a Salesforce employee to make it easy for anyone to push docs from their working platform into Confluence. Written in Python, it's easy to set up and simple to use. Take a look at the metro docs on ReadTheDocs for more information.
