A successful open-source community documentation initiative has:

  • Comprehensive documentation provided on a central, official website.
  • Inline comments and user feedback.
  • The most common paths on the website are the most visible, intuitive paths.
  • Fluent navigation and document hierarchies. (The URL matches the Breadcrumbs matches the content. If users get lost, users give up).
  • Accurate and relevant official information, well vetted information.
