Do we have a style guide for Fedora Magazine? Should we?

Hi all,

Just wondering if we should consider a brief style guide for Fedora 

One item to cover on this would definitely be how to capitalize the 
titles of our posts. Having this consistent is always a good thing.

For the capitialization of posts, my vote is for sentence case. This 
tends to be the most popular currently in online publications [1], [2]. 
and in my honest opinion, it is not as harsh and shouty as the 
alternative title case. Title case is also a lot harder to get 
consistent, as many people have different ideas of what to capitalise.

For example, the sentence case is simple, capitalize the first word, and 
any proper nouns:
Fedora 21 will feature "Solarized" color schemes in both the Terminal 
and Gedit

and the title case (depending on who is writing it) could be:
Fedora 21 will Feature "Solarized" Color Schemes in Both The Terminal 
and Gedit
Fedora 21 Will Feature "Solarized" Color Schemes in Both The Terminal 
and Gedit
