Just to let people know:
Bart Couvreur has offered to give a session on CVS and XML in the
#fedora-docs channel on freenode. The idea is to get people who are
new to the docs project, CVS and XML in particular, off the ground.
We'll also be talking about documentation for the new spin tools in
F7, Revisor etc...
Feel free to drop by!
Oh, and the time: Thursday 7th June, 1800-1900 UTC.
i've just become a maintainer of one of the guides over at tldp.org,
and the current build infrastructure is based on DSSSL stylesheets,
whereas i'd really prefer to work with XSL and xsltproc.
does anyone have a working toolchain that runs under FC6/F7 that
uses strictly the XSL-based stuff? thanks.
So, it seems that we have forgotten that Fedora 7 ships Firefox 2, which fixes
the auto-selection of the browser homepage language, so we missed including
Tommy's adaptive index in F7.
Can we fix this and push an update on the release-notes package for F7, so that
user's default browser homepage starts properly localized instead of english?

I'd like to take this opportunity to introduce myself and offer my
services to the Fedora community.
Having spent 4 years working in IT in the motorsport industry, generally
doing all sorts from Linux HPC Administration to SAN Administration to
Network Administration, I fancied a career change and now work as an EMC
SAN Administrator Symmetrix & Clariion) in the public sector here in the
UK, which is where I have been for over a year and a bit.
I've been a Linux enthusiast since 1998, first distro was RH5. Since
then I've used SuSE -> Debian -> Gentoo -> Fedora.
I've used Fedora on and off since FC4, but have now settled for FC6
(soon to be Fedora 7) as the OS of choice on my workhorse laptop. IMHO
Fedora is the most polished and mature distribution available. I only
use Windows when I really have to... :-)
The articles I would like to see written about or hopefully write about
if given the opportunity are :-
- SAN Boot (FC & iSCSI)
- Volume Management (PVM2, EVMS etc.)
- File Systems - Benefits of each, performance tweaks etc. (Reiser,
ext3, JFS, XFS etc.)
- Open Source Backup Software - What's out there? Comparison between
- File replication software etc.
to name a few...
I have never worked directly with a distribution before, other than
contributing via forums. I am however one of a rare breed of people who
actually enjoys writing technical documentation & procedures. This is
something that I have done pretty much every day of my working life,
some people shy away from doing documentation, I'm the opposite. I find
it very rewarding when others learn from shared knowledge.
I'm not a programmer. I'm a Sys Admin. I cannot profess to know anything
other than bash shell scripting. I do however have good people skills
and a talent to pick up new things. I'm enthusiastic about Open Source
Software, and I feel that this and the other qualities I have mentioned
make me an ideal candidate. To conclude it would be exciting to be able
to contribute or give back to a (Linux) community that brings so much to

If you want to contribute, yes. It is pretty much impossible for the
project to function with a single list. You might use something like
gmane if you aren't fond of lists.

My name is Marek and I'm working for Red Hat in Brno, Czech Republic in
Desktop helpdesk support team. My goal in documentation team is to make
better the Slovak translation of Fedora as it's pretty bad . I speak
English, Slovak, Czech, French and I understand Dutch and Polish. My gpg
keyid is B0179D09.
Feel free to ask any question, I have only one: somebody who translated
already Fedora in Slovak or Czech?
