Contributions from the community are encouraged. If you have a piece of software or a proposal for an API or a data standard that you think would be a good addition to the ESL, here are the steps to follow:
First of all, read About ESL for an introduction to the possible categories for ESL entries. Have a look around the existing entries to get a feel for how the division in categories works in practice. Also look at our dummy pages for Software and Functionalities.
Then, ask yourself a few questions:
We remind you to pay special attention to the category tags at the end of your page. All entries should contain at least two mandatory tags:
You will see that existing entries also contain other tags, categorising them into themes. For the moment, these are maintained by the ESL Curating Team, and so you do not need to worry about adding them.
If what you are doing involves more than documenting in the wiki (e.g.
coding for ESL, or linking something from ESL into some program), or you
are embarked in a significant documentation project (e.g. data
standards), please, create or edit the
Current developments section in
the corresponding wiki page.
Finally, reward yourself for all the hard work by adding your name to the Credits page.
