Greetings Sameer, thanks for introducing yourself!

You might be interested in looking at the planned docs in - these include a Getting
Started Guide, a Desktop Users Guide, a System Administration Guide, and
so on.  I think what you want to write about will fit nicely into one or
more of these existing documents.  You can help out wherever you feel
the most comfortable and ambitious.  :-)

This sounds interesting.  Is it possible the Developers Guide is a good
place for this?  More information would be helpful, I think.

Hmm, how can we work this in to Fedora?  I've got it -- a "Cool Places
to Take Your Fedora Laptop" tutorial!  Well, OK, maybe after we finish
the core documentation...  :-)

Maybe you can join forces with Rahul in correcting some of the
misinformation we see floating around those sites every once in a while
in their Fedora previews. :-D

You should simply hop in where you feel comfortable.  You will find that
the FDP, like most open source projects, doesn't really hand out
assignment per se, but instead we rely on you to gauge your skills and
participate where you feel you have time and energy available.  Do as
much or as little as you like; if you have questions you can usually
find people on IRC #fedora-docs, or you are ALWAYS free to
mail the list with questions.

Check out the resources above and see what you'd like to help with.
Contact the authors listed, let them know you'd like to help.  Let us
know by posting here if someone needs to add you to an editing access
list somewhere.  Thanks for your interest and we look forward to hearing
from you!
