Hardening Doc Update
Ok guys, sorry I've been gone for so long. It seems others have been
out as well. Anyhow, I've finished the hardening doc, and would like to
get some feedback: glaring omissions, errors, etc. I have to try to
remember what my bug number is (it HAS been a while), and once I get
some feedback, I'll post it up there so it can hopefully go to editing.

status from firstname.lastname@example.org
by Karsten Wade
Speaking strictly for myself here, although I think this applies to many
As many of you know, the Engineering team at Red Hat is in the final
stages of the next release of Enterprise Linux. I'm deep into the
particularities of SELinux just as others are working on their own
I apologize for not being present on list/in project lately. This
situation will continue for a little while longer, for myself at least.
However, if you are looking for a response from me for any reason, I am
always camping on #fedora-docs on irc.freenode.net. Drop your question
and hang around (or give your email address), I'll read it eventually.
Several of us continue to have interest in tweaking the toolchain.
There are many docs to be written, and a few in the works to be edited.
There may even be a few in the queue to get posted to
fedora.redhat.com/docs. We appreciate your patience, keep the good work
coming, and thanks for hanging in there with us.
cheers - Karsten

I just joined the list, though I've read through some of the archives.
Will there ever be any documentation for Fedora comparable to the "Red
Hat Linux Manuals" found here:
Is there any reason why this material could not, or should not, be
updated for Fedora by the community (e.g. copyright?).
I still find myself using the RH9 "manuals" a lot, even for Fedora.
If permissable, I would help out in updating selected portions of this
documentation, in areas where I possess some measure of competency.

Adding boilerplate errata/CVS instructions
by David Malcolm
Attached is a file that supplies boilerplate instructions for reporting
errors/patches with a document.
Also attached is a patch to my Stateless Linux tutorial which pulls in
the file and uses it, with the various sub-entities given sane
You can see a usage of this file in an unofficial copy of that tutorial,
I propose adding the first file as "fedora-docs/common/errata-en.xml"
Any thoughts/rewrites? Perhaps the heading should read "About This

Release notes on project website
by William M. Quarles
Considering that some people might still want to download Fedora Core 1
(i.e. since those paying attention might have noticed that the 2.4
kernel still performs better than 2.6), I think that it would be a good
idea to have the release notes for Fedora Core 1 on the website, even if
only for historical purposes. Red Hat always left old documentation for
Red Hat Linux up on their website, and I don't see why The Fedora
Project should behave any differently.
