We’ve added a new category to the GitHub Docs, “Contributing to GitHub Docs”, filled with resources used by the GitHub Docs team, the rest of the company, and the open source community to create documentation. The articles in this category explain the processes behind producing documentation, how GitHub approaches docs, and how to write docs according to GitHub’s style and content guidelines. If you’ve ever wanted to know the processes behind producing documentation or you’re about to begin documenting your own project and want to base your processes on our approach, you can now find that information in GitHub Docs.

GitHub Docs is an open source project that everyone is welcome to contribute to. To contribute, head to our github/docs repository and browse the open issues with the “help wanted” label.
