I've just added a few more ideas to:
These are a bit vague so anybody with an interest, please feel free to
comment or rewrite what's in the Wiki.
- PostgreSQL: Last meeting Gavin noted that we don't have anything on
Postgres. Fedora ships with PostgreSQL 8 and some specific admin tools,
so it would be great to promote this.
- Overview of the Free Java stack.
- Overview of Python Development with Fedora (or Fedora Development with
Python ?). Not so much a "Hello World" tutorial as "what is it, why
it's good, how to set it up, and where to find the tutorials".
More people working with Python = more patches :).
These are good ideas. We need to concentrate on the Fedora-specific
sector of documenting any developer tools, with the intention not to
replace the product manuals but rather to get people to the point where
they can start using those product manuals. This is especially vital
when we have a relative dearth of current Fedora guides for quite a
number of more fundamental areas. Therefore, a guide to using
PostgreSQL would not be good, but Stuart's idea for a guide to what
PostgreSQL "stuff" is available on Fedora, how to install it, and where
to find the official documentation is great.
