Announcing the Fedora Wireless Guide, an overview of wireless
technology (primarily 802.11) and their implementation in Fedora.
This guide is designed to provide a high-level summary of 802.11
wireless technology, equipment, standards, security concerns and myths,
and communication concepts, etc. -- to provide those with little
knowledge of wireless a good starting point to the terms and ideas.
It is not intended to be an advanced guide, rather to provide a good
grounding in wireless. Of course, it allows a lot of room for expansion
into more advanced topics.
Also covered briefly are other mobile technologies (EV-DO, HSDPA, etc.)
A Bugzilla component also exists. This will hit CVS/F12 section of
d.fp.o soon, so I would greatly appreciate any proof-reading/review,
bugzillas or other comments.

AFAIK, these release notes (the awesome PDF version the design-team produced):
are a subset of the Release Notes that the docs team produced:
so strings may match between these documents.
That said, i think we should also start planning on how to get this
awesome (and useful) doc localised for the f13 version.

The prose quoted is from an earlier version of the release notes. The version currently on f12-updates says:
"Fedora 12 requires an Intel Pentium Pro or better processor, and is optimized for i686 and later processors. "
I pushed and tagged this to docs.fp.o on Monday, but it isn't showing up. I am currently trying to track down why not. Unfortunately, I have relatives visiting which limits my time somewhat.
A change to the relnotes this close to release will hit a _lot_ of
translators. Not too sure about this one, so I'm ccing to the docs

#82: Need a logo for the Docs team
Reporter: rlandmann | Owner: duffy
Type: task | Status: new
Priority: minor | Component: Artwork
Severity: Quick & Easy | Keywords:
Publican (the XML publishing tool used by the docs team) includes a small
logo and hyperlink at the top right corner of the pages it builds in HTML.
The hyperlink points to the documentation team responsible for the doc (in
the case of Fedora docs, the Fedora Documentation Project), plus that
No logo for the Fedora docs team actually exists, so on all our Publican
docs, we just get a "Made with Publican" logo instead. You can see an
Something actually relevant to Fedora, documentation, or Fedora

Hi, somebody reported a blank release notes index page linked from
fedoraproject.org. Does anybody know why
http://docs.fedoraproject.org/release-notes/f11/ is blank now? I think
there used to be a language selection page there back during the F11
release, but it'd be nice to make something available there for now to
fix the broken link (we could change the website link, but then all
language pages would point to the English document, which isn't that
Also, will there still be index/language selection pages for specific
documents? While http://docs.fedoraproject.org/ has language selection
dropdowns for all documents right now, we sometimes want to link
specifically to one particular document from he website, like for the
release notes, or the install guide on the download page.

Subject: broken link on home page
On the Fedora Home Page (http://fedoraproject.org/index.html) there is a link
to the release notes.
What's new in Fedora 11? Read the release notes. >>
where is this supposed to take me?
I assume it is supposed to go to http://docs.fedoraproject.org/ but it does
not, it takes me to a blank page.
