I recently opened this PR, which is a work-in-progress: https://github.com/edx/edx-platform/pull/23183
My goal, and one we discussed as part of the build/test/release working group, is to create a reference manual for edx-platform, and later for all other Open edX services. This is groundwork that is a strong requirement before the working group can even start talking about crafting the named releases.
As you guessed, there is a lot of work involved which is why we need you! We are looking for early feedback on these docs: what would you like to find there? what is the best format and layout? can you write some of the docs?
If you’d like to contribute, I’ll be more than happy to add you to the openedx-btr-wg organization on Github. You can then directly push your changes to the PR. Just send me a personal message with your Github nickname.
Also, feel free to hack this topic to post your comments as much as you want
