Good idea. Having this discussion in the open makes sure we are all
working from a common ground.
Such as, have a mapping of content to who owns it? Then issue an email
that is a diff or a patch?
That's not a bad idea. It could get annoying, so maybe we need a way to
bundle up all the changes into one send, v. sending every time someone
saves a change to the wiki.
I think this stretches waaaaaay back to an old Red Hat Docs Team goal of
converting all the man pages to a DocBook format, and then work on
The main motivations I can think of are:
1. Provide useful, Fedora-specific content (man/info pages that only
appear in Fedora)
2. Make this content available in many ways (CLI, WUI, but if they were
XML, they could appear in GNOME Yelp or KDE Help)
3. Contribute fixes back upstream to improve the state of all content
It is the latter that is truly the most interesting ... and also the
hardest to accomplish.
