I’m seeking volunteers to help me audit sections of Drupal.org. This will help us determine what we content have, where it is, and what work it needs (whether it’s redundant, outdated or just not worthy). I haven’t determined if this project should exclude Documentation book nodes, which obviously add a lot more nodes to the mix!
This content audit will be the first step towards a content strategy for Drupal.org.
I’ve got a copy of Drupal.org on a dev environment, but I think for efficiency, we’ll want to work from a google docs spreadsheet (plus Views can’t display non-node content items, e.g. landing pages). I can extract relevant node info from Views to the spreadsheet (e.g. our content inventory) but it’s the assessment that needs volunteers.
Let’s start small, and inventory the top level of all the book nodes, then we’ll do level 2, etc.
I don’t expect we’ll get into level 4 of book nodes, particularly Documentation, since they have a lot of eyes on them anyway.
If you don’t know what a content audit is, a few blog posts:

(I’ve written a blog post about conducting content audits on Drupal sites, but it’s still being revised!)
Thoughts? Can you spare several hours over the next couple weeks?
