Description of task
The source tinderbox is a set of scripts that automates the checkout of the latest sources from the FreeBSD repository, the compilation of the sources, creating build logs and monitoring individual tinderbox instances. In order to expose more developers to tinderbox' functionality, it needs to be documented in the FreeBSD developers handbook. A wiki page has details on tinderbox and is available here: http://wiki.freebsd.org/Tinderbox
To complete the task, the information from that wiki page need to be put into the developers handbook along with examples and/or descriptive text that shows what tinderbox is capable of. The new content needs to conform to our documentation code style guidelines as outlined in the Documentation Project Primer for New Committers (see below).
A FreeBSD system (in a VirtualBox Virtual Machine) installed on your computer.
Knowledge of the documentation guidelines for the FreeBSD project: http://www.freebsd.org/doc/en_US.ISO8859-1/books/fdp-primer/
