This is the main page for the Fedora/RHEL/CentOS docs FAD, which is a FAD focused on collaboration on docs with other projects in the Fedora ecosystem.
- Identify key strategic deliverables. For example, Installation Guide, Admin Guide, etc. The Fedora docs team can (and almost certainly will) deliver other docs, but these will be the focus of cross-project collaboration.
- Outline how each key deliverable can be assembled from smaller topics. Smaller topics ease reuse and collaboration between teams.
- Discuss the hornet's nest that is tooling. Common tooling can reduce cross-project friction, but it's not strictly necessary. Fedora needs tools that serve its community's needs first.
The completion of these goals will create the following positive change within the project:
- The Fedora docs team will have better strategic direction for its docs, rather than writing whatever somebody happens to decide to write.
- Fedora documentation will have more contributors from downstream projects by making reuse easier.
These outcomes connect with the following Fedora Community Objectives by creating documentation that can be reused for modular Fedora. Fedora's modularization efforts are in line with the direction of its downstream projects, and easing reuse for downstreams also makes Fedora's docs more reusable internally.
