Evergreen Documentation Interest Group (DIG)

The Evergreen DIG was established in May 2009 at the first Evergreen International Conference, where members of the Evergreen community committed to developing single-source, standards-based documentation for Evergreen. Since then, the DIG has been actively working toward that goal.

We welcome new participants and invite anyone interested to attend meetings, volunteer for tasks, and join the discussion lists. There's a role for everyone!
