Sometime in the month of July 2009, I had a tentative suggestion on the mailing list about producing a Fedora Booklet. The idea around the Booklet/Handbook is that it should provide the following:

* a take-away reading material to anyone who wants to do off-line reading about The Fedora Project
* content that can guide anyone interested to participate
* a reasonably detailed overview of the Fedora way of doing things
* explain the Four Foundations in the form of talking points
* be amenable to be translated if anyone so chooses
* should be in a form that can be taken to the printers and, be printed in bulk
* should have lots of pictures
* should not be tied into a release or, specific date/time
* should be small to fit into an event box, coat pocket or, slip into a folder

Note: Below is a draft ToC of the handbook. At a first glance, a significant segment of the content is already available via various means (including this wiki). There is a need to enter into conversation with Marketing and Design teams to make this happen.
