About this resource
There are three primary sorts of resources integrated into the Guide:
- Good practice. This information is editable (in a wiki) by anyone with a W3C account.
- Operations. These are operational descriptions edited by the W3C staff.
- Process. These are references to process or policy requirements.
Some ideas to make this easy to use
- Signposts for differences (e.g., "For CGs").
- Search or index (don't want to manually manage multiple overlays)
- Stack-overflow type FAQ tool
- Connect to Member site admin tools (e.g., list audit)
- Make sure people are aware of this resource (e.g., new chair email pointing to this; new participant email points to page on using tools, etc.)
- Training built on top of this resource
- Include or link to examples of good practice
