Goals of This Repository

The intention with this repository is to create a place which tracks all the documentation changes across the unnamed project in one place. This should help people whom are not exposed to the project in any sustained way have a single place they can go to for information about the projects within unnamed. With that said, the documentation hosted here is for technicians and 'back of house' staff. The content within this repository does not prioritise general public use.

You can read the documentation in this repository in two ways:

  1. read the raw markdown (.md) files within the project folders in this repository, or;
  2. download a 'Released' version and read that (as a .pdf).
