I'm hoping to come in on Saturday and spend most of the day adding a
few things. Are you doing all this on the docs/drafts wiki? Or are
you doing it in docbook...I've just been adding content to

I'm a 31 year old man from Oslo, Norway. My name is in the signature
I've been working with networks and computer security for the last 5
years, before that I was an instructor in TCP/IP among other things.
I'm currently taking a year off, studying for Security+ and RHCE
I have translated student material from english to norwegian in my
days as an instructor, and would like to join the Fedoraproject and
offer some translation or writing in english.
Primarily, I'm interested in things related to networking and security.
I've been working with both Linux, Windows, Mac OS X and some FreeBSD
through the years.
I'm a hobbyist Python programmer, have done some Java and C as well.
My name is Davidson Paulo, I'm a brazilian Fedora Ambassador,
cvsdocs-admin, trying to work in Fedoca Docs since now. :-)
I was looking at the Fedora Installation Guide and I saw there is
no images on the entire document. This is a standard? We in Brazil are
thinking to create a full-detailed Fedora installation guide that can
be enough to a new user install Fedora itself even without any
experience with installing Linux or any other operating system, but we
not want to create another unofficial guide, but improve what we
already have in hands.
So, what about including images in the official Fedora Installation Guide?

I completely forgot my other AOB for the Docs meeting this morning,
sorry... I am contemplating doing away with the completion requirements
(>90%) for all release notes components, for several reasons:
1. We don't do this with any other code in Fedora. Incomplete
translations are not stifled in normal packages.
2. Nothing is lost if English appears in a translation; the content is
still official, meaningful, and (hopefully) helpful in most locales.
3. Incomplete translations are a way of luring translators with instant
4. Translation teams that rely on a single volunteer are unfairly
penalized for not being able to get hundreds of strings done in a few
This was pretty much my idea to begin with in FC6 (or was it F7?) time
frame, so any shouts of "Of course we shouldn't have this requirement,
you insensitive clod!" are best aimed squarely at me anyway. What say
the rest of you?

A week back or so there was a thread about web based translation of
strings. or something like that..
Is that live.. ?
My Hindi Docs Translation is doomed for a while, my HDD is off,
luckily have a backup, but that means no more further translation till
I get my Fedora up and running again.
a webbased tool would be a boon for me..

I put a post up on fedoraforum.org a week ago to try and get some
feedback as to what people want in the way of guides. While mentioned
in the FDSCo meeting the issue is generally not guides but people to
maintain those guides I get the feeling that people do not know where to
look to find the information.
Is there a way to package the docs so they show up in fedora itself
under a package name of fedora-docs-fedoraadminguide or something along
Are we able to create a submenu in gnome/kde where docs can show up
there in some sort of way? While the help menu in gnome is helpful a
lot of people have never looked there.
The thread location is listed below. If you read it the majority of
complaints are about clarity and reasons to do things (mv -i foo).
Was there anything that needed working on?
I mentioned transferring information from my website to the wiki but I
haven't heard any feedback regarding that and I don't really want to
start by screwing up the wiki.
