I am not even sure it's docs responsability but I guess at least I may
get help to report it to the correct team - websites, etc ... - so
please bear with me.
I have found looking for a text covering "What is Fedora" on Google,
the "About Fedora" link on https://getfedora.org - in my case it showed
me the spanish link - points to the wiki page
https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/Overview that redirects permanently to
At that page, some HTML gets escaped so the raw HTML is visible on the
I tried to surf throught Pagure to see if I was able to find the
correct repo, but was not successful.
I hope you can help me to report/fix this issue.
I'm happy to put time on it and submit a PR if it's on our repos, or to
file a bug if it's not.

I drop this mail, just to point out that in the Packaging mailing list
it has been found/stated a "weakness" or lack on the documentation.
It's about how to update the freedesktop mime database, when installing
desktop files - so how to use update-mime-cache I guess.
I let it here just in case someone find it's worth taking a look at it.
I don't even know if this is lack is true, or this information is
somwhere on the documentation, but I was unable to find it.
Hope this helps.

I'm a 38 year old technical writer from Germany. In my day job I'm
writing instruction manuals for machines and I don't have much
experience with describing software, but I think there will be at least
some similarities :)
I tested Fedora back in my school days with Fedora Core 1 and 2 (still
have the CDs), then I had a long Windows-only phase, which ended when I
first heard about Gnome 3. So I installed Fedora next to Windows with
version 15 and I think I haven't skipped a release since then. Since
one or two years Fedora is my primary OS and Windows is for gaming and
some stuff my wife wants to use. Right now Fedora powers my desktop
system, my ~14 year old laptop and my tablet (Surface Pro 4), which is
a pretty big variety of devices if you ask me...
Parallel to my job I'm working on my master thesis about the advantages
and possibilities when using version control software in documentation
projects... and yes, I'm writing a chapter about how
docs.fedoraproject.org works as a positive example. If someone wants to
talk about it, I'm always glad to have interview partners ;)
A reason to write about the Fedora docs is because I want to contribute
somewhat in the future, after the thesis. I think I am a somewhat
typical linux user who knows enough about computers to not destroy
everything, but has to do some reading first if asked to install
software which isn't in the repos or available as flatpak. So I hope I
can be useful to write tutorials for the average user because I'm one
What I'm not used to is writing in English, so if you don't understand
something in future communication, maybe that's because I messed
something up. I'll try my best.
I uploaded my GPG key to pgp.mit.edu and this mail should be signed
too, so if someone prefers encrypted communication, you should have
everything you need.
I'm looking forward to work with you
