Need help writing or editing your collection docs? We have community writers ready to help review docs PRs and provide basic help using the Edit on GitHub feature. These writers can provide grammar and readability advice for your collection docs or other Ansible community project docs. Ping us in the #docs matrix/irc channels to get details on how we can help, and see the project tracking board here.

There's a new vote open about adding an ansible-community command to show the version of the community package that's installed. This would be independent from how people have installed the community package (pip, rpm, dpkg...). Please vote by June 7, 2022!
