If you are interested in contributing to Fedora Weekly News see the Join page.

  1. Read the information sources for your beat. Usually, this will be a team's mailing list archives and meeting logs.
  2. Decide what are the 1-5 important things that have happened in your beat's area of focus during the past week that everyone in the Fedora community should know.
  3. Write up a summary of those important things in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN/Beats/the-name-of-your-beat (look at the table above for a list of current beats). Looking at the pages for other beats should give you an idea of formatting, writing style, length, and how to link in references.
  4. Edit the table in http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FWN/Beats so that the entry for the section you just wrote reads "COMPLETE" instead of "incomplete."
  5. Email the Fedora news list (http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/news/) and let us all know you're done.

If you have any questions, ask on the fedora-news-list.
