Fedora Weekly News: Beats
The weekly news are separated into beats. A beat, derived from newspaper and laboratory usage, is the act of reporting news or research results; or a round or course which is frequently gone over, by a newspaper reporter.
These are the pages where the weekly news beats are written. Content here may be derived from bugzilla reports, blog posts and mailing list discussions.

- Read the information sources for your beat. Usually, this will be a team's mailing list archives and meeting logs.
- 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.
- 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.
- 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."
- Email the Fedora news list (http://lists.fedoraproject.org/pipermail/news/) and let us all know you're done.
