The Fedora Documentation Project produces documentation of the highest possible quality. To attain this goal, Documentation Project documents follow a consistent, readable style. The Fedora Documentation Style Guide provides uniform guidelines for specific elements of Fedora documentation. The Fedora Project uses American English (en_US) primarily. We recommend dictionaries published by Merriam-Webster for spelling reference.
