This page describes the workflow for publishing content on Fedora Insight. It is intended to answer the question "how does a written piece get published on Fedora Insight?" If you are a writer, an editor, or a potential writer or editor, you're in the right place.

Contents

Submitting Content

Publication Types

There are currently three publication types defined for Fedora Insight:

1. Events - content about occurrences in the Fedora world such as conferences, FUDCons, FADs, etc. that are either about to happen or have just happened. For instance, selected highlights from event reports by Ambassadors would go here.

2. Fedora Weekly News - the same content that is currently being rounded up and published weekly by FWN.

3. General News - items that do not fit in either of the above categories, such as feature profiles or contributor interviews.

User Accounts

User accounts on Fedora Insight will belong to one of three user categories:

1. Users: general news contributors; probably can be anyone who has a signed Fedora Project CLA. For most people reading this page, this is the type of account you will want.

Log in with your Fedora Project credentials into FAS[1] and apply to the cmswriters group. After you are approved, you'll be able to post to Fedora Insight as a contributor.

  1. https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/home/

2. Editors: a smaller group who will review, edit, decision and publish contributed news articles.

Log in with your Fedora Project credentials into FAS[1] and apply to the cmseditors group. After you are approved, you'll be able to post to Fedora Insight and review and approve content as an editor.

  1. https://admin.fedoraproject.org/accounts/home/

3. Administrators: a small group who administers the configuration of Zikula for Fedora Insight, including theming, pagemaster configuration, workflow definition and publication type configuration


This page will document the workflow for each, from both contributor roles and editor roles.

Logging into Fedora Insight

Once you have been accepted into the appropriate group as above, use your Fedora Project credentials to log into [Fedora Insight]

We still have to document how to use your accounts. If you's like to get started before these instructions are finished, that would actually be very helpful - it encourages us to finish them faster! Email the logistics list with a link to this page and an explanation of what you're trying to do.
