Subject: Fedora 34 release notes are now open!

Fedora 34 Beta is out now, so it's time to start writing release notes once again!
As usual, we aim to cover notable Changes. Ben Cotton has been tracking those in our release-notes issues for us, which allows us to grab a list of everything that needs to be documented. Branch *f34* is ready for your pull requests!
= What to do
1. Pick one or more issues in the list linked above.
2. Open each issue you picked, and click the Take button on the right to claim it. (If you claim an issue but later find out you don't have time to write about it, remove yourself from the issue ASAP so others can see it's free and take it!)
3. Find some information about the issue. A lot of them have plenty of info in them already; if not, find out who's responsible for the change, and talk to them on IRC or via mail. Of course it's always better if you try to do research before you ask questions. Note that you might not always be able to reach the owner in a reasonable timeframe; in that case just do your best, I'll be reviewing PRs, so if we publish something wrong, it's on me.
4. Write a release note about the issue. If you're not sure how exactly a release note looks, check out some of the previous releases for inspiration. We don't want any long, overly technical texts, the release notes are generally meant to highlight changes, not to tell people how to use something.
5. Now the workflow diverges based on your permissions and technical skills:
5a. If you know how to use git and asciidoc, we'd appreciate if you wrote up the release note and sent a pull request against the main repo, branch "f34". Your contributions should go into one of the files in "modules/release-notes/pages/", which one exactly depends on the contents of the change you're documenting. Use the "build.sh" and "preview.sh" scripts in the repository root to preview your changes locally; see the repository README for specific instructions. If you can't see the section where you added your contributions at all, make sure it's included in "modules/release-notes/nav.adoc".
5b. If the above sounds like gibberish to you, it's fine: just add a comment with your text into the issue, and ping me on IRC/Telegram or through e-mail; I'll mark it up for you and make sure your contribution appears in the final document.
See also our contributor docs for some additional info and tips; especially the "Git for docs writers" section if you're not familiar with the system.
If anyone has any questions, go ahead and ask either here on the list or on IRC, I'm happy to help. The current schedule shows the preferred final release target on *April 20*, which gives us about 4 weeks to do this. The release date may slip, but don't count on it.

I am Swastika, many of you might already know about me as I have introduced
myself on the design team list too, I'm an outreachy aspirant, UX designer,
deeply interested in HCI. Currently, I'm a Chemical engineering sophomore
at IIT Roorkee but my interests are in Design. I started my design journey
as a graphic designer.
I will be contributing in an open source for the first time. Right now I am
working on #715 Requesting review for the renewed design of Fedora
I would love to work with the team and contribute my best to it. I'm open
to all sorts of help and contributions.

Thanks for reaching out to me! I am CC'ing the Fedora Join SIG and Games
SIG mailing lists in my reply.

Awesome. We can always use help testing new package updates. Perhaps
some of the other Games SIG packagers who put together the Games Lab
know of specific packages to watch out for.

Do you have a Matrix/Element (https://element.io) account or a Telegram
account? The Fedora Join SIG is a great group of folks who can provide
some guidance and tips on where to get started in Fedora.

Hope to see you around. :-)

Hi, my name is Hristo Marinov and I live in Sofia, Bulgaria. I'm currently working in optical disc manufacturing, where I implement different roles including machinery maintenance, software applications development, network and system administration. I also develop web applications, that I host on my own servers. I look forward to joining the Fedora community and contributing to this project.
Besides machines and software I like mountains, running, biking and photography.
Thanks and Regards,
this is Andrea. I am a italian software engineer working in the automotive
industry. I am confident at writing C, C++ and python code. During my
everyday work I am taking care of real time applications for embedded ECUs.
During my free time I like reading and studying. I always admired the
fedora community and I am a huge fan of open source software.
I hope to learn new stuff, improve my coding skills and of course give my
contribution to Fedora.
Cordiali saluti / Best regards,
Hey guys, my name is Diana Vazquez Romo. I am 23, from Oakville, Ontario, Canada and recently graduated from Princeton University with a CS degree. I have little experience using Fedora though want to help improve any documentation. If you have any advice as to how best to get started, let me know!
