Caveat: I don't represent anybody other than myself.

As Rahul says the official RH documentation is under OPL, and the
impression I get from discussion on this list is that new documents have
to be written in order for the licencing to be "clean".

I've written most of an Installation Guide, and any
help/suggestions/contributions are very welcome - there are several
areas that need work.  Should have a new version out shortly, but the
older version is available here:

You can also put forward suggestions, patches etc. for the released
Fedora documentation (or write your own).  Full project information is

The Documentation Guide is very helpful on the process, but you don't
need to have mastered the technical aspects before you can start. 
Plunge forward :)
