Docs are being converted to a new build engine called Antora. A preview is
already available in staging at docs.stg.fedoraproject.org
. Please note
that the design is still being finalized. We will switch the production
instance on 1 August 2018. To prepare we need to take several actions and
that includes asking you to merge some PRs that will reorganize your docs
repo to work with the new tool. Your content will not be modified. The
content will continue to be in AsciiDoc.
To accomplish this, we are requesting that you observe a freeze between
Friday 27 July and Sunday 29 July during which the following steps will be
1. All existing content needs to be converted to the Antora structure (
). Someone from the
Docs team will send you a PR during the freeze.
2. Please don't modify your repository during the freeze. We encourage you
to merge any complete PRs before the freeze. PRs opened during the freeze
will need to be restructed to the new repository structure after the freeze
before they can be merged. The only PRs you should merge during the freeze
are the ones filed by the team converting your repo to Antora.
3. We will not be rebuilding the production site after the freeze starts
until 1 August. The stage site will be built to show the new builds so you
can check them after the freeze.
4. The site will be deployed to the stage instance,
5. At the end of the freeze, a confirmation will go out that contributions
can continue. Periodical rebuilds of the stage site will
continue. Production will get its first update on 1 August.
I will be available on IRC, Telegram, and email during the freeze for help.
Although I’m in Europe, I’ll do my best to be available even later in the
evening for our US-based contributors.
Please let me know if you have any questions.
