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.

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.
