We are looking for new projects

Documentation and translation

With this building cycle we are starting with a new category [8] on discourse.

The main focus of this category is documentation and translation. Translation is taking place on [4], and we have a basic training video [9].

We want to be able to add as many new languages to the release's documentation. Those with at least 35% will be considered for inclusion in the documentation.

If you have questions on how to add a language, please do not hesitate to ask in [8].

Pull requests for documentation are welcome in OSGeoLive's documentation github repository [10].
