It's been suggested that a good beginner task for me would be to
proofread and edit the FAQ and related pages
). I am happy to take that on.
I've read the pages about writing using the wiki and wiki editing. It's
left me with the impression that perhaps the FAQ should be broken into
pages instead of being one long page.
It changes some of the dynamics. It makes it easier to collaborate,
e.g., one person can write FAQ/UsingFedora whilst the other edits
What do people think of this potential change? Is there a standard
to lay out a multi-page FAQ? I am imagining that the table of contents
would be one page. Each of the six main topics would also become a page.
You might want to take a look at how the release notes beats are
You'll note that it does *not* use a [[Table of Contents]], instead
relying upon he manual list at the top. That list lets us link directly
to the sub-pages that are [[Include()]]'d below.
Having all the content appear on one single page is a very different
experience from having to travel to separate pages. Besides, I think
you have to pull them in with [[Include()]] in order for the [[Table of
Contents]] macro to work.
There are other things we can think about, such as defining a standard
for wiki formatting choices for content such as:
- command line options
- content from within a text file (such as a configuration file)
I'm running across these inconsistencies with Docs/Beats/ right now. :)
