Primary  Objective:

Developing a  sustainable mechanism to reduce entropy in OpenMRS documentation

 Project Description

We would like to work with a technical writer who can help us develop a suitable approach to avoid entropy in our documentation.


Possible outputs that could be developed  include mechanisms to help identify and manage documentation improvement. One example, would be coming up with a convention for labeling wiki pages that our outdated or pages in the wrong location. A Confluence macro could be used to display all such tagged pages as an automatic work queue for documentation improvement. Another example would be to create a page or process to identify all pages under “active projects” that haven’t been modified for > 1 year as candidates to be archived.

Skills Needed

  • Knowledge on developing documentation processes and Standard Operating Procedures
  • Knowledge on techniques and approaches to reduce entropy in open source documentation

Objectives at the end of the Assignment :

  • Processes and operating procedures on how to continuously update user documentation in a seamless manner
