You'll have to precise what skills are needed for this type of job.
Is there any documentation to read before entering in this type of
What are the tools that will help the project.
Do these tools exist in the RPM Database ? :P
Are you looking for something other than these?
I want to build a documentation center based on documentations which are
easy to use and read, and easy to understand so I'm interested by this
project because, if you know how things are done, it's easier to explain
how they work.
Fedora documentation is more immature than, for example, Debian
documentation. We are starting from scratch with tutorials and HOWTOs.
First we need to write the documentation. This is what is needed right
Using the Fedora docs project tools is more difficult than other
methods, such as those used by fedoranews.org
. This has hurt us in
terms of getting more community writers using the tools and
contributing. Still, it's the "right thing" to use a scalable solution
such as DocBook from the start, no matter the difficulty.
Aside from the document that I wrote and maintain, I want to help
facilitate getting everyone else's documents written. There are many
people on this list willing to help even the newest writer get their
tutorial or HOWTO ready for Fedora docs.
