Updating Microsoft's documentation in GitHub RRS feed

  • Question

  • Where would I ask questions about the process of improving Microsoft documentation?

    I have already submitted a few changes to the Microsoft documentation that have been accepted. So I am familiar with the process of creating a pull request (I think that is what it is called) and editing and requesting the edit to be applied.

    Please see NameItemTemplate sample · Issue #7589 · dotnet/docs, especially the part that says "The sample code goes in the dotnet/samples repo.". If I want to create a (new) sample project for the article then I don't know how to do that.

    I have seen Visual C++ documentation is on GitHub but I can't find much else that is relevant. I assume that there is documentation of GitHub that would help but want to find relevant documentation specific to improving Microsoft documentation.

    So where do I ask about that?

  • Looks like you can provide feedback here.

    https://github.com/MicrosoftDocs/feedback/issues

     also I've commented a few recently using links at page bottom and someone almost always replies immediately.

  • Yes, that is probably what I am looking for. I will try that and if nothing better is suggested then your response is the answer.

    And the Contribute pinned repository has very much related to what I was going to ask about. Going from the repository to the actual documentation gets me to Microsoft Docs contributor guide overview - Contributor Guide. I think I will submit suggestions to make that documentation more accessible (easier to find).
