documentation / example review

Folks,

We have recently been getting a lot of contributions around the prose
documentation and examples (which is great!) however our review process can
be very frustrating, particularly for new contributors. I propose that we
use the review threshold for documentation and examples of "Is it better
than it was before?".

Please remember to be kind and patient with new contributors!

Hi all,

In related matters, I think I should point out the possibility of building
docs on Circle CI again [1]. This has two benefits:
a) reduced load on Travis, meaning faster feedback for PRs, and;
b) browseable built docs *before* merging, so if someone makes a change on
GitHub, they can see the actual effect on the website, or the reviewer can
see it before hand, instead of waiting for a devdocs build later/building
locally.

I think Nelle and Chris Holdgraf will be working on circleci related things
tomorrow.

I have become :+1: on using circle for the docs to get the previews since
the last time we talked about this.
