Goals in the Fedora Project:
- In an editorial fashion contribute to the readability,
comprehensibility, and interpretation of documentation for the newbie /
average user of Fedora / Linux.
- Offer suggestions for the enhancement of documentation
- Assist in getting the docs out in as timely a fashion as possible.
I know I am probably not the best person to lead the development of a
document but feel that I am capable of contributing to it and at the
same time learning more about OS, it's ins and outs.
Welcome to the project.
One of the issues that we have as documenters is that we often know too
much, and can forget about basics.
There are two documents currently being developed specifically for new
users that you could definitely contribute to:
(now being developed by Bob Jensen and Martin Brej)
(Chris Lennart and Scott Glaser)
At this time there
are too many possibilities for documents, though one that has been
suggested on the Fedora list is a summarization of many of the more
common problems and solutions that are posted.
We also have a FAQ that may be included with releases, and would benefit
from a review:
Writing with the Wiki is extremely simple to learn. This page explains
how to get edit access:
And of course, the Bugzilla reports are also helpful in letting us know
where we need to improve.
