sorry for the lack of communication from my side, have been extremely
busy the last week or two. And then my mailserver broke done, fun all
over the place. So consider this as an answer to all mails (here and
there I'll quote in)
Anyway, I'd like to thank everyone working on the AG right now: you have
all done a terrific job thus far and I must say I'm impressed with what
we've got ATM.

Well I'd say we should indeed avoid stuff like using wiki-macro's, as
they tend to not get converted at all. I'd split out into multiple pages
when need be. As in: keep stuff as it is split right now, makes it easy
when we convert to DocBook to say this is a section, that's a

Yeah that seems to be a reasonable target. I'd like to get this done
early and we might want to create a docs hackfest around it: learning
how-to convert, splitting up the work: collaboration at it's best :-).
We could perhaps ask for the asterisk server to be setup for something
like this, but that might not help productivity, otoh: I'd like to hear
some peoples voice (don't ask me why).
To support this effort, I'm going to start proofreading the whole AG
from beginning and checking style and consistency etc. Just keep
whipping in stuff and I'll get to it later. If you think a section is
done, maybe we could add a tag at the top, like:
|| <!> '''Section is ready for editing, have at it''' ||
Anyway, keep up the good work and thanks again everyone involved :-)

You'll find this at:
John Poelstra and I worked together to make this agree with the overall
release schedule and to hammer out some dings. We invite everyone to
take a look, comment, and fix as required.
We don't have any Guides on the roster yet, but certainly we should
begin considering that schedule and add it as well. We are also
interested in tracking start dates, as well as the usual end (or target)
dates for these tasks. John can help identify blocking issues, and
often (as was the case this time) going through the schedule with
someone collaborating can help expose problems or issues.

Just wondering has anyone started this? The reason I ask is because I
just checked it out and all the information is for Fedora Core 6.
I read something about it but has it been committed to CVS?
It's good to be back! have been out of touch on work assignments, but
I'm ready to get back to it. I finished the upgrade to F8 today, and I'm
ready to dive into the FDUG/FUG. I'll take a look at the wiki tonight,
and more than likely just start at the top and work my way down. Are
there any sections already in progress that I should avoid?

Yeah it should but I don't have access to it so I can't do anything.
I have cvs access I received confirmation. I'm trying to commit to cvs
except I'm getting the following error cvs [server aborted]: "commit"
requires write access to the repository
Where am I going wrong does anyone know?
That is the command I am running.
cvs commit selinux-faq
cvs commit selinux-faq-fc8
[marc@Strike-Lap docs]$ cvs commit selinux-faq-fc8
cvs commit: Examining selinux-faq-fc8

This is what got it working for me adding this.
[marc@Strike-Lap en_US]$ cat ~/.ssh/config
The cvs should be fedoraproject I was advised as well since everything is
moving to that hostname.

Actually still got the error.
