As many of you know, I am the project lead for FlexUnit 4.x. The technical side of the project is in great shape with new features, releases and tests forthcoming, however, the place we are really lagging is good documentation.

Right now the FlexUnit team is quite small and 120% of our time is occupied with development and user support. Unfortunately this means that the best engineered plans for good documentation seem to get farther behind as the days go on.

We are looking for a few people who would be willing to own large chunks of the documentation. We would arrange conference calls as needed with the developers of key sections to talk through approach, technical details and future plans. The goal would be to ensure you have a full understanding and access to anyone you need when writing. Ultimately, it would also give you a few things.

First, you would have unlimited access to learn FlexUnit at a very, very deep level. Second, you could help create a volume of work (I am hoping we can produce both wiki content and eventually a comprehensive PDF book) which will continue to be attributed to you. Third, that attribution plus future recommendations from myself and others on the team and in this industry are guaranteed (and very helpful for future interviews).

Anyone who is seriously interested should leave a comment on this post and I will reach out to you immediately.
