Not to rain on anyone's parade, but I recall seeing a discussion of 'User
Stories' back a few months.  There seemed to be very little response, but
hey, its worth trying again I suppose.

Here's the thread I found on the mailing list:

https://www.redhat.com/archives/fedora-marketing-list/2008-April/msg00059.html

And I did a quick search on the wiki and found this:

http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/UserTestimonials

Hope these things help.

Cheers,

Clint
