Create outline for documentation for the game Mahjongg

completed by: Chris Beiser

mentors: Tiffany Antopolski

  • Brainstorm topics for new topic-based Mallard help (see bug 618344).
  • Group topics into categories, for example: play, advanced.
  • Expected results: A completed index page with stub pages for topics, and three completed topics (of your choosing), in the form of  a git format-patch.
  • Requirements: install gnome-games-extra, understand how to play mahjongg, a good-command of English and ability to organise material and, write and explain concepts clearly. An understanding of Mallard XML, irc, gnome bugzilla and Git is a great asset.
  • You may want to have a look at the tetravex documentation as an exampleof an outline for a game, and get the current up-to-date version of the tetravex docs from by typing in terminal:
    • git clone git://
    • then type:
      cd gnotravex/help/C/
    • and then type
    • This enables you to view the tetravex docs docs using Yelp.  You can view the source .page files using Gedit or vi.
  • I can be found on #docs on  My nick is mimico.
