Write user documentation for Matrix trial
Open, Needs TriagePublic

Description

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 Vector.im-hosted instance. There is m:Matrix.org but it's outdated and focused on IRC, and of course assumes use of the central public Matrix server (which is pretty slow).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.

The server is at https://wikimedia.modular.im/ (but users won't interact with that directly), the default client is at https://wikimedia.riot.im/.

For myself: Riot Web is licensed under Apache-2.0 license so screenshots should be fine for Commons. (I'm working with Tgr for the docs.)

Oh, glad to hear, @revi, I'm happy to help edit the docs (I just got back from paternity leave), I'll look for updates here
