This page is based on a similar page in the MediaWiki -- the tool that drives the Gramps online documentation. The references below are about tweaks to using this tool when documenting Gramps. For basic concepts about becoming a competent MediaWiki author, the developer site will have the best information.
The Gramps Wiki documentation is a community project. If you notice that documentation is: outdated, incomplete, entirely missing, or not yet translated into your native language; request a WikiContributor account and help us improve!
If you haven't received confirmation that an account has been created within a few days, send a message to the webmaster. Please give us those days... this is purely a volunteer-in-your-free-time operation.
For those seeking help organizing their genealogy research with Gramps or development of Gramps tools, an almost overwhelming amount of information is available online... but it can be difficult to locate.
Start by using the search box in the left sidebar or by searching the maillist archives linked on the Gramps community contacts page.
