Adding a Writer

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.
