First thank you for the response. I am somewhat surprised to recieve a
response to this thread from the FPL. In answer to your question, it will
likely be a collection of the various types of documents as you detailed in
the third option. Alternatively, I can see this taking the form of filling
in gaps in existing Fedora documentation that we have discovered in the
process of using it for TigerOS. One possible example that I can think of
is the lack of consistency in various versions and forms of the
documentation on building RPM packages. It is also relatively difficult to
find detailed information on how to reproduce the Fedora building and
hosting infrastructure inexactly, for example on a smaller scale. I have
also copied the rest of the TigerOS team on this message to get their
I believe we could move to a model where we had a shared content set in Fedora's
pagure that would containt he content that is not remix specific. This would include docs
about the infra components you mention which I believe are part of the Infrastructure
teams' goals to document.
If you all also adopted the Fedora tooling, you could maintain a content set of Tiger OS
specific items as well. When you went to publish you would be able to construct a docs
site that contained both sets of content. We could most likely even get this to the point
that for something like the Installation Guide you could just selectively replace the
content you need with the Tiger OS content and draw from Fedora for the rest.
