Adding a Writer

Starting 25 June 2020, Magazine-related discussions have moved to a new place: the Fedora Magazine Discourse forum. New article proposals are also being submitted there.

When a new writer joins the Magazine, they usually want to track their work in our kanban. Whether they take an existing article or suggest their own, an editor needs to add them to the kanban’s list of permissions.

  1. Ask the writer to login to the kanban instance if they have not done so already.

  2. Find out the writer’s Fedora Account System information. For instance, using Zodbot you can use the command fasinfo <fas-username>.

  3. In the kanban instance, select Admin on the left navigation bar, and then select Members. Select New Member and add the contributor as a Writer via their FAS email address (this is not their @fedoraproject.org alias). This puts them on the team.
