  • Is there documentation such as that that applies to all Microsoft documentation, not just C++? I assume that all Microsoft documentation is updated in a obviously corresponding manner.

    I have made some update to existing documentation that has been accepted so I am somewhat familiar with the process. I am not sure, but I think that when we click on the link to edit an article, we go directly to the Step 5 of the article linked to here. Is there documentation describing what to do from there?

    Please see NameItemTemplate sample · Issue #7589 · dotnet/docs, especially the part that says "The sample code goes in the dotnet/samples repo.". If I want to create a new sample project for the article then I don't know how to do that. The article linked to here says "The repository has a codesnippets folder, but this is not ready for public contributions." but I assume the various repos for samples are ready for public contributions. For that article a complete sample project is especially relevant since there is so much unrelated code.

    Note that I have created the question Updating Microsoft's documentation in GitHub about that.
