This page explains the Docs team mission statement, what the team does, and the ways that contributors help.

Our mission

The mission of the Fedora Documentation Project is to provide documentation to users and developers to improve the overall usage of Fedora. We do that by explaining the usage of certain pieces of software or systems, provide written accounts of special events (releases, etc), and provide recommendations on setting of software or systems (security, performance, etc).

What we do

We document the Fedora operating system.
We concentrate on the default offering, but we document many different aspects of the Fedora distribution.
We document project processes.
These processes include various how-to guides, such as how to translate software and documentation.
We cultivate domain-specific uses of Fedora.
Artists, doctors, musicians, engineers — they all have interesting ways to use free and open source software. We provide a place for them to develop docs that are specific to the things that interest them.
