The documentation is split into different parts:

More than 300 modules. No kidding.

As our list of Git repositories indicates, Sling consists of more than 300 modules.

Their importance and maturity varies, and we do our best to keep this information up to date, marking modules as deprecated once they stop being useful.

Some of these modules have their documentation in their Git repositories, linked from the repositories list page, while others have at least part of their documentation on this website.

This page is about how this documentation is maintained and who is allowed to do what.
