About


Open Web Docs is a collective of people and organizations who believe well-maintained web documentation is critical digital infrastructure that delivers immense social and economic benefits. We provide full-time support to key documentation platforms such as MDN Web Docs, and empower communities to participate equitably with companies to create and maintain important content that is accessible and inclusive. 

Our 2021 priority is building a cooperative, public documentation roadmap for MDN, bolstering core web documentation and browser compatibility information while supporting the platform’s migration to GitHub and fostering a healthy contributor community.

Our governing committee and steering committee are currently meeting weekly. We are actively developing a series of initial workstreams and a cadence of progress about which we will soon be able to share regular updates. For details about our organizational framework, please see our GitHub README. To find out more about the work, get involved, or inquire about other contributions please email [email protected] or [email protected].
