Documents typically begin life on the Fedora wiki.  This is to aid the development of the document until it can be finalized.  Unfinished documents are categorized as [[:Category:Draft_Documentation]].  Once the document is deemed complete, the Draft_Documentation category is replaced by the [[:Category:Documentation]] category.
 
 
If the documentation is deemed to be "official" and in need of a more permanent home, the wiki pages are translated into Docbook XML which can then be used to generate HTML and RPM files that are distributed to the public.  HTML files are published at http://docs.fedoraproject.org and RPM files are published in the Fedora repository.

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).
