What we do.
The mission of the Fedora Documentation Project is to provide documentation to users and developers to improve the overall usage of Fedora. We do that by explaining the usage of certain pieces of software or systems, provide written accounts of special events (releases, etc), and provide recommendations on setting of software or systems (security, performance, etc).
How we do it.
If the documentation is deemed to be "official" and in need of a more permanent home, the wiki pages are translated into Docbook XML of which can then be used to generate HTML and RPM files that are used to disseminate to the public. HTML files are published at http://docs.fedoraproject.org and RPM files are published in the Fedora repository.
What we are working on now.
We are working on a number of guides that aid users in setting up and using Fedora:
- Installation Guide
- Release Notes
- Security Guide
- SELinux Guide
- User Guide
- Schedule of tasks to implement the goals
All documentation produced by Fedora is released under the Open Publication License :
The following pages collect notes, hints, and other bric-a-brac that would otherwise be lost to the vagaries of the list archive's "search" function.
