Fedora Project Wiki 对编辑来说入门是很容易的, 刚开始使用 wiki 需花点时间, 你应该看看我们准备的一些准则. 本页的内容提供了这些准则和技巧来帮助你.

这个文档分为3部分: 获得编辑权限, wiki 基本编辑, 高级编辑.


为了防止不怀好意的人破坏 Fedora Project Wiki, 我们不得不对编辑权限做限制. 要获得 wiki 的编辑权限, 你必须完成下面的步骤. 任何人都可以获得编辑权限

  1. 熟悉本页信息及本页链接到的页面信息. wiki 所遵循的基本准则都在这里. 没有遵循这些准则造成不必要的工作, 其他志愿者可能撤销你的编辑特权。
  2. Complete the Contributor License Agreement through the Fedora Account System. Signing the CLA gives the Fedora Project the ability to license your contributions to the wiki under the Open Publication License 1.0 without options. This assures that your contributions will remain forever Free for the community to use, modify, and redistribute, just like the Fedora distribution. See our Legal section for more information. Follow the instructions at Infrastructure/AccountSystem/CLAHowTo.
If you are interested in more general website maintenance, or wish to be part of the Fedora Websites team, please see the Websites page.
Information on writing new formal Fedora documentation using the wiki is available from Writing Wiki Documentation.

准则和 Wiki 礼节

There are a few simple points you should follow as you make changes to the wiki. Below are some examples. In general, be courteous and use common sense. Defying these guidelines and causing problems are a good way to get your edit privileges revoked. If you have questions, you can ask on #fedora-websites on freenode.


Before you start editing any page, kindly introduce yourself by adding your information to your wiki page. After you have registered your name in the wiki, you automatically have a personal wiki page located at<username>, where <username> is replaced by your Fedora Account System account name. You can also easily get to your wiki page by clicking your username in the top right-hand corner of each page of the wiki.

For examples, take a look at some wiki pages of our contributors.

Make sure you mention at least your email address and, if you are on IRC often, your IRC nick and channels you are often in.


It is important that you follow changes to pages you create or edit, so you can coordinate with others working in the wiki content. Wiki editors usually add notes to the pages to convey information to each other as part of working together, and it helps to keep track of these changes.

You can find the watch link in the tab bar at the top of a page when you are logged in.


Be bold while editing changes. Wiki changes are tracked and can be reverted when necessary. This doesn't mean you should be reckless especially when making large changes to key documents.

For more information on being bold, take a look at the be bold editing guideline on Wikipedia.


These pages have been carefully written, and the words chosen carefully. When changing these documents, it is usually best to ask for review before applying changes. You can contact the Fedora Advisory Board for assistance.


Do not add any information that violates the law. Remember that the Fedora Project is an entity in the United States, and is governed by its laws. Avoid linking to or adding information about software that is not free and open source or that is legally encumbered. If you think you have a special exception, bring it to the attention of the Websites team for discussion. See the ForbiddenItems page for examples of items that should be avoided.

Bring questions to the Websites team for discussion. If needed, they can get the official word.


Large and important guides, such as the Packaging Guidelines , are generally managed by a specific individual or small group. It is best to work with them when you feel that changes are needed.

Important pages, like the FedoraMain or Download pages, are the first thing that many visitors see. Changes to such pages should generally be left to experienced contributors. If you feel that something on such a page should be altered, bring the issue to the Websites team for discussion.


Senseless edits should be avoided. Making an alteration to a page just to put your name in the edit log is unacceptable. There are plenty of pages (most of them, in fact) that have real errors that can be corrected. Instead of making pointless edits, such as removing or adding whitespace or changing links from to (the former is preferred), try finding errors in spelling, grammar or punctuation that can be corrected. Also, when correcting a small error, mark "This is a minor edit" using the appropriate checkbox before you save it.


Wiki pages are generally referred to and linked to from various other locations. It is important that you coordinate with the appropriate groups before moving content or renaming existing pages. It would be better to avoid doing that without strong rationale. If you wish to discuss moving a particular item, bring your questions to the Websites team.


Wiki pages that are no longer needed can be tagged for deletion by adding {{Delete|Reason}} to the beginning of the page, this gives Wiki Administrators the ability to ensure that important or archivable content is not lost.

Follow the ideals that Fedora holds important

For example, try to remain desktop-neutral and user-friendly, especially for non-technical users who are new to Linux and to Fedora. Users may use GNOME, KDE, the console, or some other environment. Try to keep that in mind when writing instructions. Make sure that Fedora's devotion to free and open source technology is also represented properly.


When you attach a file to a wiki page, you should create a detached signature with your GPG key. Some file formats, such as RPM packages, support GPG keys, in which case you do not need to create a detached signature -- a signature in the file will be enough. A detached signature can be attached to the page alongside the original attachment, or can be included in the page itself.

GPG signatures allow others who download your file to verify that it came from you and has not been modified or corrupted. They do not violate your privacy in any way, they simply allow others to have confidence in the origin of your files.

Images and simple documents are safe to leave without a signature, but there would be no harm in adding one anyway to verify that you were the author.

If you do not have a GPG key or want to learn more, see the Cryptography page.


Whether you are a skilled writer, or your English skills are not strong, invite someone else to review. Well-written documents are important to Fedora's image. Even the best writers are prone to typos or other errors. Take a moment to review your changes to catch small errors. Use the Show preview button when editing a page to check your syntax.

Fedora 是一个社区

When writing content, for the wiki or elsewhere, remember that Fedora is a community. We operate as one, unified group, moving towards common goals. We do not need to distinguish one group or class against another. For example, there is no need to distinguish between contributors who work for Red Hat and those who do not. All contributors are part of the same community. There will be cases where classification is necessary, but it can be avoided otherwise.

如果你有不知道, 随时提问

Other community members will be happy to assist you. The #fedora-websites channel on freenode is the perfect place to discuss the wiki or other Fedora websites.

关注你的页面, 其他人的页面

Two details make a Wiki successful as an open content collaboration tool. First is being able to watch content you are responsible for, to make certain it stays true to its mission. Second is being able to watch other content develop, grow, and occasionally need your help.

To watch any page on the wiki, after logging in, click the watch link in the tab bar at the top of a page. It should change to unwatch after it has finished. If a page has unwatch at the top, you are already watching that page. You can click unwatch to unwatch a page.

To receive emails for every edit, go to my preferences (at the top of the page by your name) and make sure to check the appropriate boxes in the User profile tab, under Email.

使用 Special:Watchlist

Special:Watchlist (available by clicking my watchlist at the top of each page when you are logged in) displays pages you are currently watching. For more information on how to use this special page, please the manual page at

We are now maintaining a stand-alone Watchlist_How-To to help Fedora contributors with specific suggestions and tools.

概述更改 (又叫提交日志信息) -- 这是准则

We all need to be able to quickly glance at a change and know the substance of it. A full diff is not always available. You must supply a summary of your change (Summary: field when editing). This is akin to a changelog message. Explain what you did and why, as well as other useful links and details.

If you choose to not put in a summary, it should be the rare exception. One reason is when doing a minor edit. In that case, be sure to check This is a minor edit when saving.

WiKi 页面的结构

This section describes the common structure of a wiki page. Follow these guidelines for every wiki page. There are additional rules used for formal Fedora documentation, covered in DocsProject/WritingUsingTheWiki ; those rules are only required for content written to follow the procedures of the Fedora Documentation Project. Pages that are templates of standard content that are drawn into other pages may have a different structure.

Header 1 (h1) deprecated for use in markup
The header 1 is defined by the page title. When making new or migrating pages, either re-nest or re-structure the page to have only header 2 and below.
  • The title of the page is a first-level header. It is created automatically from the page title.
  • Sections are created using the equals symbols in pairs:
== Header 2 ==
=== Header 3 ===
==== Header 4 ====
===== Don't do this, 5 levels of nesting means you need a new page or three =====
  • The table of contents is automatically created and populated when the page grows big enough.
  • Anchors to sections are automatically created, with specific symbols used in place of punctuation and spaces:
This page ==> This_page
This, that, and the other page ==> This%2C_that%2C_and_the_other_page

You can use .2C instead of %2C for anchors
The substitute of '.' for '%' works for anchors against a specific section.


这些都是编写 WiKi 你必须知道的最基本的信息.

欲了解 WiKi 更多 文件起草的信息, 参考 Writing Wiki Documentation.


学习如何编辑 WiKi 较好的方式是检阅存在页面的代码. 这是非常容易的:

  1. 找到你想要阅读源代码的页面
  2. 在导航栏, 找到组合框 'More Actions:', 点击它.
  3. 选择 'Show Raw Text' 选项.

页面将以 plaintext 格式显示. 学习在你之前的 WiKi 编辑所使用的技巧, 这些聪明的技巧是宝贵的, 它们很有趣很强大你是想到没有想到过的. 你可以在页面中试一试技巧.

注解, 技巧, 其它警告

这些统称为警告, 在 are used in DocBook. 要把段落放入警告中, 使用特别的警告模板. 建议使用一个简短的标题和一个较长的段落描述.

命令样例是一个命令或多个命令集.不要使用提示符或者其他显示了机器名,用户,路径等信息的内容. (这些在$PS1环境变量都设置了)

任何命令样例应该放入 <pre></pre> 标签里:

su -c "yum install awesome-application"

Enter the <code>root</code> password when prompted.

Which produces:

su -c "yum install awesome-application"

提示后输入 root 密码.

命令 和 root
命令执行需要 root 权限. 读者不要以 root 登录系统, 当执行这些命令的时候必须先使用 su -csu -.

如果命令需要引用, 应当放入 " '' " 里, 单引号被双引号包围, 例如:

su -c "command -o 'Some Text' -file 'More text' foo/bar"

如过需要一系列命令或者 su -c 没有如预期的, 可用户切换到 root 并且警告用户之后要返回用户 shell.

su -
service food stop
cp /etc/foo.d/foo.conf /etc/foo.d/foo.conf.backup
vi /etc/foo.d/foo.conf
food --test-config
service food start


当样例要显示命令的输出, 应当使用命令提示符区分命令和它的输出变得清晰.

$ su -c "ls -l /root"

Fedora Wiki Sandbox 尝试一下. 那里可以发现很多好的小例子.

在 WiKi 建立新页面

Fedora Project Wiki 很大, 因此有必要保持一个适当的层次和组织. 最好学习方式是检阅 Help:SubpagesHelp:Categories, 然后检阅现有的 WiKi布局.

多余名字(例如Foo/FooBar/FooBarGrue)应该避免. 记住包括 'Fedora' 的页面名也是多余的. 主要的 Fedora 项目不需要有 'Project' 在它们的页面名称里. 例如, Fedora Websites 项目有它的页面名称 'Webbsites', 而不是'FedoraWebsitesProject'.

大多数情况下, 页面应该按照项目或者程序来分组. 根据不同的项目和程序来建立分类必须谨慎. 你建立的大多数页面应该有一个分类, 有合适的标签. 如果你认为要建立新的分类或者标签, 请询问 Websites 小组获取建议.

如果有任何问题, 随时联系 Websites 小组.


关键页面, 例如首页, 应该谨慎编辑. 修改这样的页面之前通常应该在邮件列表或者 IRC 上讨论. WiKi 的有些部分会有不同的权限, 例如, DocsProject对于新文档的产生比 WiKi 其它部分的限制更多. 为了获得这样的页面的编辑权限, 你应该完成额外的步骤,可在那些页面上找到这些指示.


如果你有关于编辑 Fedora Project Wiki 的问题, 或者如果你需要帮助, 请随时联系 Websites 小组. 他们有 IRC 频道 (#fedora-websites on freenode) 和 邮件列表 (fedora-websites-list), 都能对你需要给予有效的帮助.

如果你愿意对 wiki 做大量编辑, 你应该关心 joining the Websites team.
