This repository contains the documentation website code and Markdown source files for docs.github.com.
GitHub's Docs team works on pre-production content in a private repo that regularly syncs with this public repo.
In this article:
We accept a lot of different contributions, including some that don't require you to write a single line of code.
As you're using GitHub Docs, you may find something in an article that you'd like to add to, update, or change. Click on make a contribution to navigate directly to that article in the codebase, so that you can begin making your contribution.
If you've found a problem, you can open an issue using a template.
If you have a solution to one of the open issues, you will need to fork the repository and submit a pull request using the template that is visible automatically in the pull request body. For more details about this process, please check out Getting Started with Contributing.
We use GitHub Discussions to talk about all sorts of topics related to documentation and this site. For example: if you'd like help troubleshooting a PR, have a great new idea, or want to share something amazing you've learned in our docs, join us in discussions.
That's how you can get started easily as a member of the GitHub Documentation community. :sparkles:
