We have made all of our documentation open source so that you can contribute to it if you'd like and so that we can improve on it in public; it's available at depot/docs on GitHub.

Why?

We want to make sure that our documentation is as good as it can be, and we want to make sure that it's easy for you to contribute to it if you'd like to. However, we are a small team that is moving quickly, and while we work very hard to keep things up-to-date, clear, and understandable, we know that documentation can always be better.

Rather than having to send us an email, you can now open a pull request on GitHub, and we'll review it and merge it. Don't have time to open a pull request? That's fine, feel free to open an issue, and we can take it from there.

How to contribute

Edit Depot docs on GitHub

Contributing to our documentation is a click away. You can click the Edit on GitHub button at the bottom of any page, and you'll be taken to the page on GitHub where you can edit it. You can then commit the changes to a branch and open a pull request. We'll take it from there.

If you spot an issue in our docs but you don't have time to open a pull request, you can open an issue, and we can work on it as well. We'll keep you updated on the progress or if we need any additional information.

We're excited to collaborate even more with the community and address any issues in our documentation or add additional content that makes it easier to use Depot and learn more about building containers. If you have any questions or comments, please hop into our Community Discord and let us know.
