This is the current suggested documentation list aimed at new comers to Drupal.

If you have time to write documentation for one of the following tasks:

  • First verify that the documentation is not already available. If the documentation already exists please remove it from this list by editing this page with the link on the right.
  • If the documentation does not exist please contribute the section with the following help:
  • How to add a new task http://drupal.org/node/1424502
  • Tag help https://drupal.org/filter/tips
  • Please remove the item from this list when it is finished.

For more ideas please review 30 minutes for Drupal page.

Suggestion List:

  • Report a bug you have found in Drupal core, or a contributed module or theme.
  • Somewhat related, but probably a separate task: Report bad user interface text and suggest better text. Idea would be rewriting core or contrib UI strings for clarity and brevity. Especially overly wordy descriptions. Background information: http://groups.drupal.org/node/165659 and http://drupal.org/node/604342 ; follow-up: join http://groups.drupal.org/usability (and see links at the top there)
  • Review a patch to identify UI/API changes (programmer)
  • Improve the coding or documentation style in a patch (anyone can do this armed with basic patching skills, a halfway decent editor and/or dreditor, coder module, and 1354)
  • Provide support in IRC (similar to http://drupal.org/node/1571438 but IRC not forums)
  • Follow the needs screenshots tag and add screenshots where requested (and remove the tag where unneccessary)
