First of all, welcome to the Fedora Docs Project.

I am the lead writer for the Desktop User Guide (DUG) and am delighted
with the renewed interest in getting the DUG up-to-date and complete
for Fedora 8.

Here are links to the mailing list where I try to explain what's going
on with the DUG. The second one is probably more useful.



A good way to get up-to-speed with what's happening around the Fedora
Project, including the Documentation Project, is the Fedora Weekly
News (FWN). You can always see the most current edition at:


Don't worry if you can't make heads nor tails of some of the articles
in the FWN - neither can I. The important thing is to get a sense of
what the priorities are at the moment. One of the priorities for the
Docs Project right now is to finish up the DUG so we can publish it
before the release of Fedora 9.

I hope that helps.
