== How we do it. ==
Documents typically begin life on the Fedora wiki.  This is to aid the development of the document until it can be finalized.  Unfinished documents are categorized as [[:Category:Draft_Documentation]].  Once the document is deemed complete, the Draft_Documentation category is replaced by the [[:Category:Documentation]] category.
If the documentation is deemed to be "official" and in need of a more permanent home, the wiki pages are translated into Docbook XML of which can then be used to generate HTML and RPM files that are used to disseminate to the public.  HTML files are published at and RPM files are published in the Fedora repository.
== What we are working on now. ==
Published documentation can be found on or on this wiki under [[:Category:Documentation]].  Draft documentation can be found under [[:Category:Draft_Documentation]].

* Installation Guide
