I am a member of the Fedora SELinux community. I helped out a bit with
SELinux user guide by Murray Mcallistar.
I noticed some interest for advanced selinux administration and i had
this i idea of documenting it.
I am a terrible copy -writer but i know a little bit about the matter (i
also govern, among-st others, what your apps can do on your systems
I have been walking around with some ideas about some document for
people wanting to learn about advanced SELinux topics. Basically its all
in my mind but it needs organizing and it needs to be checked.
I've been picking chapters of this "to be written doc" and telling them
to people coming to me wanting to learn for about a few years now, and i
am kind of tired of telling the same story over and over again. So i
would like to be able to point them to somewhere instead.
As said the problem is that i cannot organize my data and my story might
diverge from the official data in minor ways.
But anyways i started a doc called "selinux adminstration guide" here:
and i have been looking for help for a long time. It seems i am asking
for much, and i guess in a way i am. Because i just cannot write my
thoughts down properly (English isn't my first language) and i am having
troubles organizing my docs). Basically all i can do is provide
technical information or point to official docs.
Yet i am somehow still determined to share my knowledge and so i am here
now. I am wondering if anyone is willing to help me make this happen.
Help me share this knowledge with the community, So that i do not have
to tell the story over and over again to each individual.
I would need some serious guidance but it we could do this in a slow
I wrote an outline to what i think would make a decent chapter. I added
links to official documentation about topics discussed. I Guess the
first step would be to get a proper intro.
I also made an start to want might be a second chapter.
Truth be told i do not know how the docs community works, writing this
doc is something i wanted to do for a long time but it is not my first
Can you tell me what steps you would take if you were in my shoes?
E.g. I have the knowledge (or know where to retrieve it), I have this
whole doc envisioned in my mind, but i cannot put the pieces together or
organize it to make it work. I just do not have the experience.
Thank you for your guidance,

As it has been very apparent the last few week, I have not been around
nor have I been able to keep up with everything going on. I took over
as the Docs Lead because Eric was very busy and was unable to devote
the time needed to Docs and now it appears that I am in the same boat.
It is not right for me to hold this title if I can't give the team the
time that is deserved. So I will put it out there that if anyone would
like to take over this position, now would be a good time to bring it
up, especially since we are still very early in the cycle.
We've missed out on a number of meetings lately, and there have been a
few things I think we want to talk about (if we can get the necessary
folks on board). Some just general FYI.
- Bunches of new redirects
- What is the status of the Docs build system? (nb)
- Where are we on the Fedora 15/Publican/PDF bug? (rudi)
- What can we do about the UG (jhradilek)
Probably more, since its been so long, but that should be enough.
Please try to be there.

decided to join the Fedora Doc Project. I am looking forward to
releasing the Resource Management Guide for Fedora any time now. This
will be it's first release ever (for Fedora that is)! Hopefully it will
be useful to someone and I'd love a big chunk of feedback, so feel free.
I also work closely with jhradilek on the Deployment Guide and am happy
to provide help where needed ;)
DocBook, Git, SVN, Bash, huge regex fan, a bit of Java, are, among
others, some of my "computer skills".
I am very passionate about IT security and love a good crypto challenge ;)
Glad to be a part of this Project!
