Wiki

The Fedora Wiki part regarding Marketing Team is the first resource other groups have in order to find tools they can use in any situation. Mainly the Ambassadors might find useful a tidy and clear Marketing wiki section, but the marketing group interest is directed to all the Fedora groups because we are the landmark for the Project and the link with the whole world. A lot of work has done in the past, but a lot of work is still to be done. Users can really help us in this "gardening" phase and in the reorganisation of our area. The Team maintains the wiki pages in the and related sub-projects and there are a lot of pages that require love.
