One of the new SIGs in Fedora is one oriented toward developers. We
have a lack of content that is for developers -- everything from how to
use the platform to why Fedora is a good platform for developers. Would
that be an area interesting to you?
Typically there are more writers with sysadmin-oriented experience; thus
I've been looking for developer-oriented writers to work with the
Development SIG. If you like this idea, you'll want to contact/join the
SIG, get involved in their meetings and such, and talk with them about

That guide is more about how to get involved/contribute as a developer.
It could certainly be updated from information scattered currently
across the wiki. In addition, specific how-to content could be
developed. All this can be done in XML in CVS, but you might have more

the work on the wiki:
If you are not interested in this idea :), you might find another draft
in that location you do want to work on. Regardless, please bring your
ideas and questions to this list so you can find other collaborators.
