Hi, everyone -
I’m planning to move a bunch of documentation about how to build Firefox off MDN and into mozilla-central, the source repository where Firefox lives, so that it’s easier to keep our documentation in sync with everything actually being documented.
The end result of that (I expect) will be that https://firefox-source-docs.mozilla.org/ will become the place all this stuff will be most easily visible.
I considered it putting it on Wikimo, but I think that in this case the most important thing is to reduce barriers to maintenance, as opposed to barriers to editing. That is to say, to make sure that documentation can be maintained in the same editor, via the same toolchain as the code or process being documented, ideally in the same commit or set of commits.
Does this seem like a reasonable approach, and does anyone have any concerns about this process?
