 So considering this list, here's a potential proposed list of new
 categories (mixed in with some of my own ideas), organized alphabetically.

 == Proposed Categories, rev. 1 ==
 * '''5 Things in Fedora This Week''' (no change)
 * '''(Fedora) Contributor Community'''
  * Articles about "the happenings" across the Fedora Project that are of
 interest to the entire Fedora user community (wider audience than
 * '''Events'''
  * Anything pertaining to events or real world happenings with Fedora
 (good place for Ambassadors to be engaged too…)
 * '''Hot off the press! / New in Fedora'''
  * Either name, depending on how serious we want to keep things. :)
  * For breaking news about major changes or updates about changes that
 ''directly impact users''
 * '''How do you Fedora''' (no change)
 * '''Interviews'''
  * Distinctly different from ''How do you Fedora''
  * Can contain any type of interview (example: Creating laser light shows
 with Fedora)
 * '''Using software'''
  * Slug: ''/software''
  * For how-tos / guides / walkthroughs of using software in Fedora
 * '''Using hardware'''
  * Slug: ''/hardware''
  * For how-tos / guides / walkthroughs of using software with Fedora

 I was wanting to scroll through our recent articles for more ideas, but I
 am unable to reach the Magazine right now… if I have more ideas, I'll
 pitch them later. For now, though, does this seem like a solid set of
 proposed categories? Any -1s on one of these?
