I wanted to let you know that the Open Help Conference is happening
again this year, Sept 26-27.
This will be year 5. It would be great to see some friendly Fedora faces
again. After the conference, we also host three days of team sprints.
Any team is welcome to join for a sprint. We supply the rooms and the
supplies. You supply the people.
Let me know if you have any questions.

I have no shortage of opinions on the matter, but the TL;DR is that I
vehemently agree with this. I'm generally opposed to wikis as documentation
for a variety of reasons, but they do have certain appealing traits.
If we use them for anything, it should be a drafting ground for new
content. Of course, that means doing most of the markup after the fact,
which has its own disadvantages, but it lowers the bar for new contributors
to come in.
You are kindly invited to the meeting:
Docs Office Hours ( Americas ) on 2015-05-21 from 12:00:00 to 13:00:00 US/Mountain
The meeting will be about:
Office hours for Fedora Docs contributors. Stop in to #fedora-docs for help with writing documentation or just to schmooze with the Docs community. Bring your own cake.

This sounds like a path to scope creep to me, and something akin to "You
must be at least this experienced with Fedora to install Fedora" would be
off-putting. The more complex sections, ie kickstart, are already marked
We have been discussing targeting archetypal personas with future
documentation, and representing the skill/complexity/experience level
required in an unobtrusive way. I'll pass this on to the list for
comment. You should also review the list archives for discussions about
personas, and https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Docs_Project_Focus .
On the last point, helping readers gain required skills and knowledge -
that's what we're all about :) Contributions welcome!
Fedora 22 Final Release Readiness Meeting.
date: 2015-05-21 place: irc.freenode.net in #fedora-meeting-2
time: 19:00 UTC (3 PM EDT, 12 noon PDT, 21:00 CEST)
This Thursday, May 21, we will meet to make sure we are coordinated
and ready for the Final release of Fedora 22 on Tuesday, May 26, 2015.
Please note that this meeting will occur on May 21 even if the
release is delayed at the Go/No-Go meeting on the same day two hours
You may received this message several times, but I was asked to open this
meeting to the teams and I'll also hope this will raise awareness and more
team representatives will come to this meeting. This meeting works best
when we have representatives from all of the teams. We also have a badge!
