Write user documentation for Matrix trial
Open, Needs TriagePublic


Write user documentation (or link it if there's a good one available, but last I checked there wasn't) in preparation for T230531: Run Matrix trial using the instance. There is but it's outdated and focused on IRC, and of course assumes use of the central public Matrix server (which is pretty slow).

This should encompass things like

  • basic glossary
  • basic philosophy and the concept of homeservers
  • how to register / log in
  • how to join a channel
  • how to initiate direct chats
  • how to manage your notifications
  • how to create and configure a channel (open, open but limited to the Wikimedia homeserver, invitation-only, end-to-end encrypted; bridging, add-ons)
  • how to manage and moderate channels
  • Riot mobile apps and alternative clients

See also T230532: Write documentation about the Matrix trial itself.
