Documentation topics and curators

MDN documentation and projects are coordinated and driven (sometimes called "shepherded") by per-topic leads, often known as curators. A Topic Curator is a member of the Mozilla MDN staff team who are responsible for looking after content in broad areas of MDN. This document lists the curators assigned to each topic, as well as seconds — people who look after the topic area if the main curators are on vacation.

Sometimes we have community Topic Drivers too — people not on the Mozilla MDN staff team (though they might be a Mozilla employee), who keeps up with changes in their topic area, and helps ensure that the content for that area is accurate and up-to-date. Note that curators and drivers do not necessarily write all the content for a topic!

Help is always welcome! If there's a topic that  you're interested in, please jump in and contribute. If there's a topic area that not listed, please add it! If you want to discuss what's needed (often a good idea), you can post on the MDN discussion forum, or pop into the MDN Web Docs room on Matrix. (Staff are most likely to be active during business hours in Europe or North America.) Address any questions to Chris Mills (the content lead).
