Currently, Fedora's community has no system of writing the documents of the technical
For example, in the manufacturing industry, the work to leave technical information
necessary for design for successor designers (engineers) is are incorporated into one of
the jobs .
Such documents will be referred to as technical specification or design specification etc
Applications supplied by fedora - such as anaconda and dnf - I think that the document of
the technical specifications are necessary.
For example, the definition of a function defined in each application is obvious to the
designer of this application, but it takes many time for a third man to understand it.
Therefore, in IT companies in general, writing a specification document is also included
in the work.
I think that, Maybe Red Hat, the main sponsor company of Fedora, would have left the
specifications when developing the application.
Fedora community should write the designer's specification document as well.

I agree that having technical specifications would be beneficial to
the community. However, because Fedora is a downstream consumer of
projects, even for anaconda and dnf, it's not practical. Particularly
since the resources available to the documentation team are limited.
I'm sure upstream projects would welcome your help writing technical
specs if you are willing and able.
