Wiki gardening

Having a great wiki is like having a great garden. It needs regular care and maintenance, and occasional big pruning jobs.

Wiki_gardening_tasks is a master task list arranged by difficulty. Some highlights from there are:

Fact check a document

Installation Guide

This guide takes a reader through the flow of installation. It is mainly textual instructions and no screenshots. This makes it more useful, easier to translate, and more encompassing of the topic. The guide is maintained in DocBook XML, but guide testing and fact checking can be done without editing the XML.

User Guide

The User_Guide focuses on common features and tasks such as email, web browsing, office productivity, managing software, using cameras, and other desktop applications. The content includes coverage of the three Fedora desktop environments: GNOME, KDE, and XFCE. In addition, the command line may be covered. Most of the tasks do not require the root password.

Work is currently underway to complete and publish a Fedora 9 User Guide. Then the content is reused, updated, and expanded for the Fedora 10 User Guide.

Release Notes

Fedora release notes are the best release notes of any Linux distribution. This is accomplished by gathering the work of many contributors via the wiki, then converting that work to DocBook XML for translation and building in to HTML, PDF, text, and the fedora-release-notes package.
