Fwd: [OSGeo-Discuss] GeoLexicon (OSGeo Glossary) pilot kicking off

John Bryant
Hi all, this might be of interest to people looking to contribute to open source geospatial software, by writing good documentation. Related, online conference for Australia & India, Write the Docs, planned for December: https://www.writethedocs.org/conf/australia/2020/

Hi OSGeo folks,
A bunch of communities are coming together to address cross-domain management of glossaries in a pilot running August - December 2020. In particular, we will be building an OSGeo Glossary, as well as custom glossaries for any OSGeo project that wants one and is prepared to help select and define your term list.

I'd like to introduce you to Ankita, Alyssa, and Naini who are tech writers who've volunteered to define and document our processes and glossaries. You'll likely be hearing from them over the next month or two.

Primary communication will be on this email list: https://lists.osgeo.org/mailman/listinfo/lexicon
(Check your spam for your confirmation email when subscribing - gmail seems to have picked out "lexicon" as a problem word.) We will likely set up a slack channel as well.

If you'd like to join our kickoff meeting, please vote for your preferred timeslot at:
https://doodle.com/poll/6uwxyngtse4rzxsk (Week of 23-29 August). (We might need two timeslots)

Communities involved:
* Tech writing
* Data modelling
* OSGeo

Hope you'll join us,

Cameron Shorter
