CLA work

    I had trouble with converting the file sent to me by the CLA page 
which has the needed words to satisfy the requirements when I put in "I 
Accept" and Karl Larsen. The method I tried was to convert this .txt 
file to a .txt.asc file. I got that to work after some trouble but when 
I emailed that back to Fedora it failed.

    Next I tried another method which may work as well. In the words of 
the file I got is below:

  If necessary, you may send it by facsimile to the Project at
   +1-919-754-3704 or e-mail a signed pdf copy of the document to
   fedora-legal at Please read this document carefully before
   signing and keep a copy for your records.

I decided to make a pdf of the text file called fedora-icla-karl.txt 
after adding the words asked for in it. This can be done on F7 and F8 
using Gedit. You can start Gedit by clicking Applications-> 
Accessories-> Text Editor and it will come up ready to use.

    Click New and then look for where your CLA file is and bring it up. 
Down near the end it asks you to write on the file as shown below:

    If you agree to these terms and conditions, type "I agree" here: I agree
    Enter your full name here: Karl Larsen
    Signing code: 6314c512cb565e955aec16204c1fad48
    E-mail: k5di at
    Date: 2007-12-18 17:00:49.46

Notice where "I agree" and "Karl Larsen" are written. Using your own 
name fill these out.

    Now click on Print... and you have a new panel appear and near the 
top see where you click for a pdf file. Another panel comes up and you 
can give the pdf file your own name or take the default "output.pdf". 
Make sure you save the file by clicking on "Save".

    On the file is the email address for Red Hat legal which is:

fedora-legal at
On this email attach the pdf file you made. When your done you have 
finished all requirements for joining the Fedora Documentation Group. It 
might take a day or two before the file is read and approved.
