The presentation gives an overview of the documentation for the GNOME desktop environment including the processes of user and developer help creation, review, release and bug tracking; documentation team management; collaboration with design, usability and localization teams and respective workflows; change management (DocBook to Mallard). The second part of the session presents the value of the free and open-source platforms like GNOME, as a real-world practice-playground resource for technical communication students, trainees and trainers.
