After some coffee, I should add some more explanation. Fedora has many
times more users than developers, and the start page should primarily
appeal to that wider audience. Most of the content on the planet — even
that which is properly Fedora-related — is pretty highly tilted towards
the geekier contributor side. There's nothing wrong with that, but it
can be overwhelming. So, the goal with the Magazine is to be more
user-focused (although there's still a lot of contributor-focused stuff
mixed in as well; we're still working on the balance).

If you're deeply involved and want the firehose, is there. If *you'd* like to contribute
user-focused content (even reposting from your blog, or whatever), see 

There's also value in having users aware of the wider community and
drawing them in, so, again... we're working out the balance, and
everyone's help figuring that out is welcome.
