Notes to Contributors

Application Installations

Whenever we discuss an application not installed by default, we should put a note about having to install it. The note should look like this:

Of course, this should be edited according to the application name, package name, and application home page, but try to use this template for consistency's sake.

  • Also note that I just made this convention up, so don't feel like you should have known this before. If you have suggestions or comments, let me know.

Advanced Topics

Whenever we add something that would be nice to have in the user's guide but isn't necessary for the basic desktop user who just migrated fresh from Windows (example: discussion of FTP programs, advanced discussion of yum on the command line), we should add a template to let the confused user know not to worry about this section if they don't want to. This is what I've come up with right now:

Error creating thumbnail: File missing
Advanced Usage
This content is written for the more advanced user. It assumes that you are comfortable with the command line and have a relatively good knowledge of Linux terminology. It is probably not necessary to using Fedora as a desktop user, but can help a desktop user expand his or her knowledge base and face more complicated troubleshooting issues.

That, again, is just my current idea until someone suggests or comments on that. Let me know in IRC or on the list. --Danielsmw 15:08, 25 February 2009 (UTC)
