ZM Documentation Updates

Post by KRPT_0101 » Sun Nov 18, 2018 10:53 am

Hello,

I’m relatively new to the zoneminder community and have configured my first zoneminder configuration for my home. I’m interested in potentially supporting the zoneminder project by writing/updating specific portions of zoneminder’s documentation. Since I'm brand new, I'm unable to PM anyone (i.e. developers). Can a developer PM me so I can make some inquiries to get started?

- Chris

Hi Chris,
Welcome to the project. We could really use the help.
PM is incoming.

Just FYI, if you need quick answers to something, our Slack channel is the best way to get them. There is always someone there during typical US timezone business hours.

As in Slack.com? Seriously? Come on guys, thats a fee for service outfit, and it prohibits anonymous access! Seems totally counter the whole ZM mindset. Am I misunderstanding?

The development team has been using Slack, for free, for years, so adding a public Slack workspace, to include everyone else, made sense.
I've seen the blogs out there describing Slack's limitations on their free plan, which we aren't likely to hit.

It's a lot better than the old irc channel, but hey - become part of the development team and you too can participate in the decision making. ;-)

I am surprised that to this day there are such volunteers who are ready to help the website for nothing. Or maybe I'm wrong and you're paying for it? This may sound silly or strange sorry for this kind of question. Just curious to know.

In my opinion, it is very normal and very cool that a person decided to respond and help. However, in my opinion, slack is really outdated and not the most convenient or secure platform for communicating and transmitting various data. Personally, I would choose a more reliable and modern web service. Although there are a huge number of different applications like telegram, messenger, viber and others, but in my opinion, these services do not offer enough and something is missing in them. For example, such sites as docsie [link removed as possible SEO attempt, if not sorry.] there is not only the ability to create different folders for projects and documents, but also the ability to create meetings, record various ideas in a specially designated place and not only. In my opinion, it is sad that really interesting sites like this remain in the shadow of applications and sites that have clearly invested less effort.
