FAQ Updates

Here are the FAQ updates since a week and a half ago. I commented on everything in between the last update and this one, but if no update came about from your post, feel free to re-post it if you have more to add or suggest.

[link] FAQ 134 updated to include information about the appearance of screened comments in S2 (previously, it only contained information about them in S1).

[link] FAQ 69 updated to remove the mention of the <lj comm> tag, since it's no longer documented or needed.

[link] FAQ 104 updated to include a note about how Support volunteers will not help people put links to their journals in their off-site profiles.

[link] [link] FAQ 131 updated to include information about the new option to allow comments that you post be e-mailed to you, and also to include information about popwithfriends.bml, which has returned.

Documentation for non-developers - Not for FAQs

marksmith is interested in getting more documentation created for non-developers:
http://www.livejournal.com/community/lj_dev/617445.html

Is there anything in particular that people want/need?

I want more documentation for Zilla that isn't for developers, like setting preferences, and how LJ uses Zilla in it's processes.

Ideally some workflows would be great too, like the lifecycle of a bug, lifecycle of a suggestion.

If anyone can link to this post in lj_support (I don't have posting access) it'd be much appreciated.

Edit: this is not documentation for users (ie. FAQs), it's for volunteers, in particular those that fall outside of the realm of developers.

I'm most looking for workflows that people would like, of the Software Development Life Cycle at LJ.
