The Manifesto

  • We are tired of haphazardly hunting through messy threads of GitHub issues and StackOverflow when we hit a problem
  • We don’t want a one-off fix, we want to deepen our understanding of the problem space
  • We want to give people a resource where they can benefit from our experience without taking up our time

What Is A Runbook?

For this site, a Runbook:

  • Deals with a defined problem
  • Provides clear and complete steps for investigating, diagnosing, and fixing the problem
  • Provides useful and relevant background information for understanding the problem space
  • Encapsulates prior experience of dealing with the problem
