The Fedora team at Nicaragua (can tell us FedoraNi) has been doing activities to improve the capacities of users to help them became collaborators with activities like Fedora School. This has include de very basic skills like FAS account, wiki editing to create profile, ssh connection, gpg keys, translation among other stuff. We like to spand the abilities of local collaborators to help Fedora Project. One of the voids that we have is local knowledge of documentation skills. We propose a FAD of Documentation with two objectives. First, built local expertise that can be shared. Second, practice completing or updating documents that need some work.

Our purpose at organize this documentation activity day is to achieve the following goals:

  • Provide local expertise about documentation
    • This may lead to create a local documentation team.
    • Diversify the abilities of local contributors

    • This will provide practice for the fresh abilities
