Who we are
The documentation team is a peer group with many members involved in very different ways. Especially important: You do not have to become a "member" to contribute to the documentation. Anyone can contribute! So it’s rather the other way around: if you contribute a text or a correction, you basically become a "peer".
And by the way, no special skills are necessary to be able to contribute. There are many ways and options to constructively doing so.
If you are interested in creating and shaping valuable information or would like to share your own knowledge and experience, don’t hesitate to join us. And don’t be afraid that you will have to make a long-term commitment at the same time. We know many different ways and intensities of contributing. See the team charter for information on how we are organized.
The Board’s task is to coordinate and organize the work of the documentation team. Current members are
Currently, we are a small but productive team. And we don’t necessarily want to be a small team in the long run. If you are interested in creating and shaping valuable information and are willing to make some commitment of regular work, please join us.
Ongoing working projects
- Migration of docs repositories
We are currently in the process to move all our documentaion from the pagure git repository to gitlab, to make use of several advanced features. Lead: darknao
- Improve the overall curation of Fedora docs
A longer term work to better adapt the documentation to the current structure of the Fedora distribution and update it at the same time. Lead: pboy
Some most recently finished efforts
Implement a long missing search function across all docs
Exclude old docs from search engines
Streamline previous release note
Projects in the pipeline waiting to be taken up
- Improving the contributors guide
We need a more detailed description of all the options available to contribute. And we may need a more extensive description of the “Pull Request” workflow to get new or modified content into our repos.
- Developing a style guide
Currently, there is no style guide resulting in an inconsistent typography and unpleasant presentation of our docs.
- Curation of the Quick Docs collection
The articles in the Quick Docs section need some care and updating.
- Exploring possible synergy effects of a cooperation between CentOS and Fedora documentation
Both distribution share a lot of code and a large number of almost identical administrative routines. It should be possible to achieve improvements for both documentation projects by joint work and coordinating efforts.
