The Documentation Working Group is considering creating personas to assist writers in focussing documentation more accurately on the needs of users.

To do this we need to do several things:

  • roughly draft some personas so we can start using them as soon as possible.
  • devise a survey that we can use to hone and validate the personas.
  • write documentation about how to make use of the personas.


These are the personas we think we need.


Please suggest possible survey questions here. If possible also give a rationale for choosing the question and what you expect to discover by asking it.
