> Subject: Writing Documentation for Fedora - Docs FAD
> We are looking for interested people who are willing to write docs in person for one week. You don't have to be an existing docs team member to participate. It helps if you're familiar with AsciiDoc, but if you're not, it's easy to learn.
> You'll hang out with other people interested in making Fedora documentation the best in the world. Fun will be had, but mostly it will be the sort of fun which involves sitting in a small room intensely focused on writing and editing. If that's *your* idea of a good time, this will be a good experience for you.
> You can find details about the FAD, including the goals here: https://fedoraproject.org/wiki/FAD_Documentation_2018
> The Fedora Council has approved funding and we will make selections based on the ability to the person asking and within our approved travel budget. https://pagure.io/Fedora-Council/tickets/issue/174
> Interested? Open a Pagure ticket in the Fedora Docs tracker here: https://pagure.io/fedora-docs
> Please include:
> - Your Name/FAS
> - Why you want to come and what your background in writing (of any kind) is.
> - Any specific areas of interest
> - Location you will travel from
> We will start picking people ASAP.

For the second time in a couple months, Ryan and I ran into a
situation where a contributor basically copied largely from online
articles to create a Magazine article. I'll amend our "how to write
for us" article, but could you folks also help us get the word out if
you happen to feature Magazine as a "get started" contribution for new
community members? Thanks.

Subject: Note on copying
To: Fedora Magazine mailing list <magazine(a)lists.fedoraproject.org>
Sometimes it's a good idea to quote in an article where it helps the
reader understand a topic, or promotes an additional reliable source.
However, copying wholesale from articles -- even if the text's license
allows it -- is unacceptable for the Magazine.
There may be limited exceptions by agreement with the editors and
community. But at its worst, it's plagiarism. As a rule, writers
should avoid copying from elsewhere.
